Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Our division is dedicated to treating infants, children, adolescents and young adults with both common and complex gastrointestinal liver and nutritional problems.

As the largest Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in the world, more than 40,000 patient visits are scheduled and 4,000 procedures are performed annually.

We are also proud to announce the US News & World Report ranked us the #1 pediatric gastroenterology department in 2013.

Our highly-trained team of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, dietitians, and psychologists specialize in the evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of diseases.

Whether your child has chronic abdominal pain or reflux or a more complicated condition like short bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease, or has symptoms that haven’t yet been diagnosed – our team of experts can help.

With more than 12 locations in Massachusetts, there are many options for convenient locations of care. The clinicians that see patients in these locations are the same clinicians that see patients as the main Boston campus, which helps to ensure you are receiving the best care possible.  



At Boston Children’s Hospital, we aim to solve some of the world’s greatest pediatric health problems. Some ways we do this stem from scientific research: Understanding diseases deeply—even at the cellular or molecular level—leads to new drugs and therapies. Other discoveries arise from moments spent at patients’ bedsides, when doctors and nurses see opportunities to improve care. This approach, which we call “clinical innovations,” often requires us to develop entirely new tools or come up with inventive strategies. This creative form of innovation is the path by which many major improvements in health care have been made.


Quality and safety


At Boston Children’s Hospital, we believe that patients and families deserve to know whether the hospital where they have chosen to receive their care meets the highest standards and is committed to excellence.  Through our Program for Patient Safety and Quality, we continually monitor and improve the care we provide to our patients. Since the diseases and chronic conditions that affect children and adolescents are quite different from those of adults, it is often not appropriate to use adult measures to evaluate the quality of pediatric care.  That’s why we have taken a leadership role in developing scientifically sound methods to measure the quality of care provided to all children and adolescents.
