Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic
Specialists in the Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic are part of the UNC Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology at N.C. Children’s Hospital. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (i.e., the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, and pancreas) and treat patients with a variety of common problems, including abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, gastroesophageal reflux, jaundice in newborns, and failure to thrive (poor growth and weight gain).
We have a strong focus and expertise in the care of patients with more chronic, complex disorders including inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), irritable bowel syndrome, short bowel syndrome, biliary atresia, autoimmune hepatitis, viral hepatitis, eosinophilic esophagitis and celiac disease.
Our core GI team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, and social workers. We work closely with all pediatric medical and surgical specialists at UNC and the many other specialists at the Children’s Hospital.
Patient care is our number one priority. We strive to offer the best medical care and find optimal long-term solutions for the children of North Carolina and their families.
