Division of Gastroenterology
Our division manages issues associated with gastrointestinal disorders and nutritional problems. We have particular strengths in the care of inflammatory bowel disease including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. We provide team care focusing not only on diagnosis and medical treatment but also nutritional and emotional support.
The division consists of two staff pediatric gastroenterologists, two clinical fellows, a clinical psychologist, and a registered dietician.
Diagnosis and treatment policy
Based on the available guidelines and medical evidence, we make the utmost effort to provide satisfactory care while taking into consideration patients’ age, character, social needs, and the wishes of the family.
Diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease
We provide accurate diagnosis and proper management with up-to-date medical knowledge and modalities. In particular we focus on growth and nutrition as well as the quality of life of children with inflammatory bowel disease.
We conduct endoscopy as part of the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal disorders. Therapeutic endoscopies such as variceal ligation or polypectomy are also available.
