Pediatric Gastroenterology

Pediatrix board-certified/eligible, fellowship-trained pediatric gastroenterologists provide exceptional, compassionate care to children of all ages with mild to severe gastroenterology (GI) disorders.

When your child is suffering with digestive and related disorders, you can trust our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric gastroenterologists to care for them with expertise and compassion. At Pediatrix, we identify and diagnose a variety of GI issues and quickly get younger patients on the best course of treatment to increase quality of life.

Childhood GI issues can be vastly different than those experienced by adults. Pediatric gastroenterologists have extensive education and experience managing children with various GI conditions. This is critical because children require specific medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment. They also have different nutritional needs than adults. Our specialists will treat and manage GI conditions from mild illnesses to life-threatening disorders in children of all ages.
