Advanced Pediatric Gastroenterology Care

Our teams of gastroenterologists and related staff offer complete diagnostic testing, consultation, treatment, and follow-up care for gastrointestinal and nutritional disorders for newborns, children, adolescents and young adults.

Conditions We Treat

Physicians who are board certified in pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology diagnose and treat disorders including inflammatory bowel disease, chronic abdominal pain, feeding problems, acute and chronic liver disease, chronic constipation and diarrhea.

Our facilities across New Jersey provide pre- and post-liver transplant care, and we are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of common pediatric gastrointestinal disorders such as:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
  • Colic
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Peptic ulcer disease
  • Constipation
  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Food allergies
  • Celiac disease
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Blood in the stool
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Crohn disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Intestinal polyps

We also diagnose and treat pediatric liver disorders such as:

  • Jaundice
  • Infectious hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, and C)
  • Fatty liver
  • Metabolic liver disease (such as Wilson's, alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency)
  • Portal hypertension
  • Autoimmune hepatitis

When it comes to the nutritional disorders we diagnose and treat, we help pediatric patients with:

  • Failure to thrive (poor weight gain)
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Feeding disabilities leading to the need for tube feedings
  • Pancreatic insufficiency.

Tests and Procedures

Our pediatric gastroenterologists provide a variety of testing and diagnostic procedures to patients with gastrointestinal disorders, including:

  • Upper GI endoscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Capsule endoscopy (pillcam®)
  • Breath testing for sugar intolerance (lactose, fructose, sucrose)
  • Removal of polyps (polypectomy)
  • Opening of intestinal narrowings (stricture dilation)
  • Gastric tube placement (PEG)
  • Control of intestinal bleeding (cauterizing, variceal banding)
  • pH probe monitoring (traditional and wireless)
  • Fecal disimpaction
  • Infliximab (Remicade®) infusion
  • Liver biopsy

Most digestive diseases are very complex, with subtle symptoms, and the causes of many remain unknown. They may be inherited or develop from multiple factors such as stress, fatigue, diet, or smoking. But with world-class technology and our integrated, multidisciplinary network of doctors and surgeons, we provide extraordinary patient care for your child.
