The Lurie Children's Difference
The 4GUT Program affords a multidisciplinary approach to children with complex foregut anatomy and/or motility disorders. Our providers utilize state-of-the-art modalities for the testing and treatment of your child including newer technologies such as esophageal impedance, esophageal and antroduodenal manometry, functional luminal imaging (EndoFLIP), and planimetry-guided dilatation (EsoFLIP). Since our providers work so closely together, we are often able to coordinate testing and procedures so as to minimize families’ time away from home, school, and work and reduce invasive procedures and anesthesia for your child.
For most children, care is provided comprehensively within the 4GUT Program. In certain cases, we may partner in your care closely with other specialty centers such as our Neurointestinal and Motility Program or the Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases Program.
