What Sets Us Apart
Gastroenterologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone treat children with Crohn’s disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, that causes chronic or recurring inflammation in the digestive tract. Unlike ulcerative colitis, another type of IBD that is limited to the colon, Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract.
Experts at the Pediatric Gastroenterology Program collaborate to determine the best treatment for your child, so he or she can achieve and maintain remission. Their combined expertise in gastroenterology, nutrition, surgery, and psychology—in addition to a variety of wellness programs offered by our specialists—helps to ensure that your child receives the comprehensive care he or she needs.
