The section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition offers comprehensive care for a variety of paediatric gastrointestinal diseases. Our physicians work in collaboration with surgeons, dieticians and other specialties to provide patient and family centered evaluation and treatment. Our interdisciplinary approach to inflammatory bowel disease means that we treat more than just the condition; we focus on all aspects of caring, including the overall quality-of-life issues facing our patients every day.
We now offer the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic that provides a team approach to comprehensive, individualized diagnosis and treatment for patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This allows your experience with Inflammatory Bowel Disease to be managed by a team each visit you make to Children’s Hospital. This new clinic allows us to commit to young people under the age of 18 with inflammatory bowel disease. They face unique challenges, such as growth, hormonal and bone health issues. Because of this, paediatric patients often need more aggressive treatments than adults. Our paediatric team is the best resource to turn to when faced with these unique issues.
