We are the #1 ranked pediatric gastroenterology division (U.S.News & World Report, 2015-16) and our team includes the best gastroenterologists, hepatologists and dietitians for children in the country. But what matters most is how our highly personalized care can help make your child feel better and get back to being a kid again.

Finding answers for our patients and their families is why we do what we do. Our incredible team of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, clinicians and nurses is dedicated to helping children with common or complex gastrointestinal, liver and nutritional problems. We can help children with chronic abdominal pain or reflux or more complicated conditions like motility disorders or Crohn’s disease, to name a few. See our Conditions & Treatments page for a full list.

Whether you’re just learning about your child’s condition, coming to us for a second opinion or searching for an answer to a recurring symptom, our team of experts can help. Our specialty programs provide innovative care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults like no other hospital. Should your child need tests, we offer a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic options in our state-of-the-art endoscopy and motility unit, because we know children require more specialized care than adults.

Ranked #1 in pediatric gastroenterology by U.S.News & World Report, our expansive care team can help parents struggling with a diagnosis find a solution by providing individualized treatment plans and access to more specialized care than any other hospital.

Dedicated to Innovation in Pediatric Care 

We are one of the first programs in the nation to recognize that maintaining the highest level of care requires encouraging physicians to develop special expertise to treat specific disease. We have subspecialty programs in critical areas:

In addition, we’ve created unique programs to help children with gastrointestinal problems requiring the expertise of physicians in other specialties:

At Boston Children’s, we are pioneering treatments and therapies for children because their growing bodies and developing systems present different challenges than those of adults. Every day new discoveries are made that help us understand how little bodies hurt and heal. From the very beginning, Boston Children’s has been at the forefront of “tummy ache” research and “I don’t feel good” science.

Close to Home

You can find the help and answers you need close to home. We have 11 locations in Massachusetts, each providing the same level of care, by the same staff as our Boston location. At Boston Children’s, you’ll always know your child is getting the best care in the country.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
