Our expert team offers compassionate care for children with a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions.
Experts at the Pediatric Gastroenterology Program, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, provides compassionate care to children and adolescents who have digestive difficulties and to those who have a broad range of conditions that can interfere with a child’s ability to eat and grow normally.
We understand that both physical and emotional healing is needed for children with gastroenterological issues, so our team of gastroenterologists, surgeons, nutritionists, social workers, and family educators partners with children and families to deliver the highest quality care possible.
We offer a variety of diagnostic services to help accurately pinpoint the cause of your child’s symptoms. Our most common services include upper endoscopies and colonoscopies, in which a flexible scope with a camera on the end is used to look at the inside of a patient's intestines. We also perform diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, including capsule endoscopy, in which your child swallows a small pill containing a camera to take pictures of the digestive tract.
Because the field of pediatric gastroenterology is complex, and many different chronic disorders affect the gastrointestinal tract or nutritional development of children, we offer a variety of specialized treatment programs.
