About Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition

When a child needs specialized care, everything matters.

Ranked consistently as a top 10 digestive disorders program by U.S.News & World Report, the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive patient care for a broad range of gastrointestinal, liver and nutritional problems. We strive for excellence in research, teaching and clinical care, and maintain a team of physician-scientists committed to the creation of new knowledge in the discipline.

Our gastroenterologists are highly trained pediatric physicians who are skilled in the full range of digestive and liver diseases and disorders, and dedicated to the highest level of care. Each physician specializes in a particular area of the digestive tract, providing our patients with in-depth knowledge and understanding of their conditions. These physicians work as a team with pediatric nurse practitioners to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, while collaborating with other specialists, such as dietitians and behavioral and developmental psychologists, to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for each child.

Each year, patients travel from across the United States and around the world to our GI program.
