Diagnosing, treating and managing the digestive health of your child

Children can experience a wide variety of digestive conditions and discomfort from birth to adolescence. This could involve any part of the gastrointestinal tract, from the oesophagus and stomach to the small and large intestine, pancreas and liver. These can not only be distressing for a child, but a sign of an underlying disorder that requires professional diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care.

Our paediatric specialists can help make an accurate diagnosis and develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your child’s specific needs.

With extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of children our paediatric gastroenterologist is also an international authority in childhood gastroenterological conditions with the expertise to diagnose and treat children of all ages. The clinic can assess and treat a variety of gastrointestinal related issues experienced by children, including:

    • Abdominal pain
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhoea
    • Coeliac disease
    • Poor nutrition
    • Stomach ulcers
    • Gastrointestinal bleeding
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
    • Liver disease
    • Gastro-oesophageal reflux and vomiting
    • Cystic fibrosis and pancreatic diseases

 

As a multi-disciplinary paediatric clinic our other specialists are also available for consultation if your child has a separate, related condition. Working closely together we ensure that they receive the most appropriate care in a safe, warm and reassuring environment.
