Children with digestive conditions and disorders, such as appendicitis, or more complex problems of the esophagus, liver, pancreas, stomach, and intestines, may require surgery to treat these conditions. At NewYork-Presbyterian’s two renowned children’s hospitals, NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital, our expert pediatric digestive surgeons collaborate in multidisciplinary teams with pediatric specialists to diagnose, monitor and treat a wide array of digestive conditions in even the smallest and most complex patients. Your child is in the expert hands of a team committed to providing our patients with the safest, most advanced techniques available to extend survival and quality of life.
About Our Program
NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital have built national reputations for outstanding care devoted to children. NewYork-Presbyterian’s Pediatric Digestive Surgery programs, offered at both children’s hospitals, provide the most advanced, safe, and proven treatments for digestive disorders in children of all ages.
Our multidisciplinary team of pediatric surgeons, neonatologists, gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists, and other subspecialists address the unique needs of infants born with congenital disorders of the digestive system, such as esophageal atresia, Hirschsprung's disease, and complex colorectal malformations. For these challenging and complex conditions, our team performs some of the most technically demanding and innovative procedures, using minimally invasive surgery whenever possible to ensure the best results and the fastest recovery possible. The team continues to closely follow our patients throughout their childhood years to manage the long-term impact that many congenital digestive disorders have on a child’s growth and development.
Our team also addresses digestive disorders in older children and adolescents, such as motility disorders and inflammatory bowel disease. We strive to take care of the whole child through a comprehensive understanding of how the digestive disease affects not only a child's health, but his or her daily life as well.
Because we are part of a world-class medical center, we have the ability to centralize care for our patients and connect our patients to providers in more than 100 specialties and subspecialties. When the time comes, we can provide the support patients and their families need to ensure a smooth transition from pediatric to adult care.
