At Brenner Children's, our pediatric gastroenterology team is the region's leader for the preventative care, diagnosis and treatment of pediatric digestive and liver disorders. Our board-certified clinical experts and other health care professionals care for and treat children of all ages, from newborn to adult.
We work closely with our patients and their families to develop individualized and customized treatment plans and are always available to answer any questions parents and other family members may have. When surgery is required, we look for minimally invasive procedures that require less time in surgery and have the fastest recovery time. Our pediatric gastroenterologists work closely with our patients' pediatricians and other multidisciplinary experts to provide streamlined care throughout the treatment and healing process.
Our team is nationally recognized as a leading center for the treatment of celiac disease in children. We also treat motility disorders and, in our Brenner FIT program, help children struggling with obesity and other weight-related issues. Our specialists work alongside more than 120 multidisciplinary experts at Brenner and our patients’ primary pediatricians and other specialists to provide streamlined, comprehensive care.
