The pediatric gastroenterologists at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health possess years of experience in performing endoscopies and other digestive tests and procedures in infants, toddlers, children and adolescents.
The procedures are performed with care, expertise and compassion towards the child and the family, with a focus on comfort and safety for the child. Some of the tests we perform are:
- Blood Tests
- Breath Tests
- Motility Tests
- pH Tests
- Radiology Tests
- Stool Tests
In addition to the above services, we also offer an Intestinal Care Center. This monthly clinic, staffed by pediatric gastroenterologists, pediatric surgeons, transplant surgeons, dietitians and social workers, aims to help children with short bowel syndrome advance in their ability to feed using the intestine. The center provides comprehensive care to these challenging patients, some of whom may require transplantation.
Our team also contributes to the Airway and Digestion Clinic. This clinic is a result of collaboration between pediatric gastroenterologists and pediatric pulmonologists. This clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to children with swallowing, airway or upper GI tract issues.
