Pediatric Gastroenterology

The University of Louisville Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology serves infants and children of Kentucky and southern Indiana with gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic disorders and nutritional problems. In addition, the division follows children who have undergone liver and/or small bowel transplantation.

Through our clinical office, University of Louisville Physicians-Pediatric Gastroenterology, we provide a full range of diagnostic procedures and treatments related to the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas including inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, failure to thrive, gastroesophageal reflux, constipation/encopresis, malabsorption syndrome, acute and chronic liver disease.

Procedures performed include endoscopy of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts; capsule endoscopy; biopsy of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, large bowel and liver; polypectomy; motility studies of the gastrointestinal tract; pH probe testing for gastroesophageal reflux; and breath hydrogen testing.

Our team also includes a highly skilled and well-equipped pathology staff and nutritionists.
