Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Children

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.
