Gastroenterology and Hepatology

At Mount Sinai, our pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology specialists are dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive family-centered care to infants, children, and teens with digestive and liver problems. Our team has expertise in a wide variety of digestive, nutritional, and liver disorders including inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), Celiac disease, abdominal pain, constipation, gastroesophageal reflux disease, fatty liver disease, hepatitis, and feeding problems.

As our patients become young adults, we also work closely with our colleagues in adult gastroenterology and hepatology to facilitate transition of care to our adult programs.

Special Programs

We offer several special programs to diagnose and treat common gastroenterological and hepatological conditions in children.

The Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program aims to optimize care for young children and teens who struggle with IBD (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis). Our program is one of the largest in the country. We provide diagnostic evaluations, second opinions, and ongoing services to help families support children living with IBD.

At The Susan and Leonard Feinstein Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Clinical Center, we provide the full gamut of IBD services. Our multidisciplinary team includes pediatric gastroenterologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, nutritionists, and a clinical psychologist. We develop a personalized treatment plan for your child with IBD, to help him or her lead a normal, productive life. With the adult and pediatric programs under one roof, we have an important opportunity to conduct comprehensive research and collaborate to offer the most advanced treatments to help your child. We can also seamlessly transition your child into our adult IBD program at the appropriate time.

The Pediatric Liver Program is one of the largest pediatric liver programs in New York City. We diagnose and treat a range of conditions including acute liver failure, autoimmune hepatitis, biliary atresia, chronic hepatitis B and C, drug-induced liver disease, metabolic liver diseases, neonatal jaundice, fatty liver disease, and primary sclerosing cholangitis.

The Pediatric Small Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Program works closely with our small intestinal surgeons to provide comprehensive medical and surgical management for a wide variety of diseases including short gut and intestinal failure.

The Pediatric Celiac Disease Program offers medical and nutritional management along with psychosocial support for patients with celiac disease and their families.

Pediatric Gastroenterology Services provides complete diagnostic and treatment services to our young patients.

Supporting Team IBDkids: the New York City Marathon

Every November, our Children’s IBD Program fields a team of runners in the TCS New York City Marathon, one of the world’s most-attended marathons, to increase awareness about pediatric IBD and raise money to support our program’s research and family-centered, comprehensive care. Our runners have included parents of patients, siblings of patients, and family friends as well as physicians, medical students, and biomedical research scientists. Some runners have IBD themselves. We have even had a few patients, who were treated in our program as children or teens, run the marathon to support Team IBDkids.

Team IBDkids is able to guarantee entry for a limited number of runner-fundraisers. For more information on running with Team IBDkids, contact childrenibd@mssm.edu.

If you want to help but you do not want to run 26.2 miles, you can help by becoming an event sponsor, sponsoring a runner, or coming out to cheer on Team IBDkids. E-mail childrenibd@mssm.edu for more information.
