What Sets Us Apart
Gastroenterologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone provide specialized care for children with ulcerative colitis. This is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, in which a chronic or recurring inflammation affects the intestines. Though symptoms of this condition—such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fatigue—are similar to those of Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis can require different types of treatment.
Specialists at the Pediatric Gastroenterology Program create a personalized treatment plan to address your child’s needs, with the goal of relieving symptoms and achieving and maintaining remission. Our team includes gastroenterologists, surgeons, nutritionists, and child life experts who support your child and family throughout treatment.
