Leaders in their field, physicians in the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition utilize the latest technologies to diagnose non-acid reflux disease in children, as well as minimally invasive and non-invasive therapies and diagnostics for Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

The NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Center for Advanced Digestive Care integrates our renowned expertise, pioneering research, and advanced therapies for treatment of digestive diseases with our successful collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The Center represents one of the first top-tier digestive programs in the country to implement this patient-centric care model. For more information, visit the Center for Advanced Digestive Care.
One of the few such programs in the northeast, the Aero-Digestive Center brings together multiple specialties (pediatric otolaryngology, gastroenterology, and pulmonology) to treat children with airway and swallowing problems, particularly those who are disabled.
The Division is currently developing a Feeding Therapy Center to help children acquire the skills necessary to become a successful oral feeder. Children who suffer from dysphagia (a condition in which swallowing is difficult or painful) or those who have needed a tracheostomy or been on a ventilator often face challenges in the transition to feeding by mouth. Feeding disorders can also result from sensory issues and behavioral responses.
