Division Highlights - Gastroenterology & Nutrition
The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition cares for children with gastrointestinal and hepatologic disorders.
Nutritional services include placement of feeding tubes and support for underweight infants and children.
We also conduct clinical research in inflammatory bowel disease.
- The division initiated a parenteral nutrition support team for inpatients, and, in cooperation with the Waisman Center, developed a failure to thrive clinic. These initiatives, combined with a multidisciplinary intestinal failure clinic launched in late 2010, provide comprehensive care for children with complex GI problems.
