Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology
If your child is affected by digestive issues, UNC Children’s pediatric gastroenterology experts can help. Our board-certified pediatric gastroenterologists and other members of the care team have expertise in children’s developing digestive systems, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.
You can count on us to identify and treat the source of your child’s gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, so s/he feels better and gets the nutrition needed to grow and thrive.
GI Care for Children
We care for boys and girls from every corner of North Carolina, as well as from neighboring states, and we’re asked to consult on care for children worldwide.
You know we set the bar for pediatric gastroenterology in North Carolina, because our program, founded in 1977, was the first of its kind in the state, and our team includes some of the state’s most experienced specialists.
UNC Children’s provides seamless, comprehensive care. Our gastroenterologists work closely with other UNC specialists, including pediatric surgeons, pediatric radiologists, pediatric pathologists, dietitians, psychologists and psychiatrists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and more. And, when needed, your child benefits by getting to see more than one specialist during each appointment.
