Comprehensive Abdominal Pain

The Comprehensive Abdominal Pain Program is a unique clinical and research-based interdisciplinary program that includes pediatric gastroenterologists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, dieticians and complex pain and sleep specialists. We believe in a biopsychosocial approach to pain management. In this approach, each child is an individual with different needs and treatment is customized for each patient.
