We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating disorders that affect digestion and nutrition. The following is a list of many conditions we treat.
One of the more common gastrointestinal problems, occurring most frequently in children under the age of 11.
A fluid build-up in the abdominal cavity.
A chronic, progressive liver disease where bile ducts that are located inside or outside the liver are blocked, not allowing bile to leave the liver, causing damage and loss of vital body functions.
Also called celiac sprue or gluten sensitive enteropathy, a sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in all forms of wheat, oats, barley and rye.
A condition in which bile is not properly transported from the liver to the small intestine, which can be caused by several childhood diseases.
A problem affecting some babies during the first three to four months of life; prolonged or excessive crying in an infant who is otherwise well.
A decrease in frequency of bowel movements compared to a child's usual pattern, bowel movements that are difficult or painful to push out, stools that irritate or tear the anus.
A chronic inflammatory bowel disease usually involving the small intestine, most often the lower part called the ileum. Also called ileitis or enteritis.
Characterized by recurrent spells of severe nausea and intense vomiting, a common disorder affecting many children today, usually between the ages of three and seven.
Watery stool or increased frequency of bowel movements (or both) when compared to a normal amount.
The inability of food or liquids to pass easily from the mouth, into the throat and down into the esophagus to the stomach during the process of swallowing.
A problem that children can develop due to chronic constipation. When a child has fewer bowel movements, they can be difficult to pass, causing a vicious cycle to develop.
