comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for kids with gastrointestinal disorders
Dayton Children’s provides expert multidisciplinary care for infants, children and adolescents with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Our pediatric gastroenterologists are fellowship trained, and they provide leadership to the program’s clinical team, which includes certified pediatric nurse practitioners, pediatric nurses and registered dietitians.
Our physicians’ extensive training and experience allows them to diagnose and treat all gastrointestinal conditions, from common concerns such as constipation to complex diseases, such as Crohn’s disease or celiac disease. They develop personalized care plans to address each child’s unique needs, collaborating as needed with other pediatric specialists at Dayton Children’s. These specialists include experts in surgery, advanced ENT, pulmonology, allergy/immunology, psychology, speech/language pathology, and many other areas of the hospital. Also, our team participates in research and quality improvement projects in order to better understand and advance the care of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
