Our Approach To Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Children

What Sets Us Apart

Gastroenterologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating children with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a chronic condition that causes frequent episodes of abdominal cramping, constipation, and diarrhea. Our doctors understand how disruptive this condition can be for your child and are able to diagnose it efficiently using noninvasive tests. 

Our doctors and nutritionists partner with your family to identify your child’s most bothersome symptoms and offer continued support to help you manage the condition as your child grows.
