Digestive, Nutritional & Liver Disorders



At UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, pediatric gastroenterologists offer comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents with digestive, nutritional and liver disorders. These problems range from celiac disease to feeding problems, inflammatory bowel disease, gastroesophageal reflux, diarrheal disorders, motility disorders, acute and chronic hepatitis and inherited defects.

We also treat children with liver failure who need artificial liver support or liver transplant, as well as patients with intestinal failure who need parenteral (intravenous) or enteral (tube) feedings, and sometimes small intestinal transplant.
