About Pediatric GI

Pediatric gastroenterology is performed specifically with a child’s body and anatomy in mind. Children’s gastrointestinal disorders and treatment procedures vary greatly from the approach that would be taken for adult gastroenterology.

Pediatric trained professionals handle every aspect of the child’s care including anesthesia and medical imaging, and are dedicated to keeping children focused on enjoying their childhood, rather than on their digestive disorder.

Digestive disorders and conditions in children can be chronic (long-lasting), or very sudden (acute). Most conditions are not life-threatening, however, some may require immediate attention. Our board-certified pediatric gastroenterologists are experts in recognizing symptoms and signs in children’s bodies and giving the most effective treatment. Our doctors utilize child-friendly treatment environments and appropriate bedside manner for children to ensure the most comfortable patient experience.

Help your child’s digestive system stay healthy by helping them drink plenty of water and eating a healthy diet. Eating foods rich in fiber, and plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains will help their body grow properly and stay healthy. Getting regular exercise also helps their digestive system move and operate at its best.
