Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition | Doctors and Clinicians

The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is part of the # 1-ranked children's hospital in the country (U.S. News & World Report).  Our team of highly specialized doctors works alongside an equally dedicated team of clinicians, including extraordinary nurses and nurse practitioners, to deliver the highest level of quality pediatric care to our patients.

Dedicated to Innovation in Pediatric Care
  • Every year we schedule more than 40,000 patient visits and perform over 4,000 procedures in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition.
  • We have over 15 specialties, ensuring your patient will see the right pediatric specialist for their presenting symptoms or diagnosed condition.
  • The doctors and clinicians at Boston Children’s Hospital are leaders in clinical gastrointestinal research, actively searching for innovative ways to advance treatments and improve the quality of care we provide to each patient.
  • Our doctors are deeply involved in developing new tests and new ways to use existing tests specifically for children. 

The faculty and fellows regularly attract major research support from the National Institutes of Health, the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation and a number of other agencies. Four past presidents of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) have been Boston Children's doctors, and the faculties are the recipients of prestigious training and research awards, including four winners of the Shwachmann Award, the highest award of the NASPGHAN.
