Leaders in Digestive Care from New York's No. 1 Children's Hospital
Our programs for children integrate the expertise of top-tier pediatric gastroenterologists with that of other supporting digestive specialists and experts in the full range of related fields. We collaborate to understand your child's illness, evaluate all relevant treatment options, and develop a fully integrated, coordinated plan of care.
Our Approach to Care
Coordinated Gastrointestinal Care from Childhood through Adulthood
We provide the most up-to-date diagnostic services and the most effective therapies through dedicated clinics and special programs for children with digestive problems such as fatty liver disease, aero digestive disorders, celiac disease, allergic diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease.
Our surgical teams are highly experienced in procedures ranging from the relatively simple—an appendix removal, for example—to the highly complex, such as small bowel or liver transplantation. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive techniques, resulting in smaller incisions, less discomfort, and a quicker recovery for your child.
Transitional Care: Your child's illness may be the kind that requires lifelong vigilance, special care, and follow up. Our transition program is geared to help adolescent patients take charge of their own medical care when the time comes to move from pediatric to adult care. We can facilitate a referral to the appropriate adult-care physicians when the time arrives.
