What is pediatric gastroenterology ?
A doctor with significant training in the healthy operation and illnesses of the gastrointestinal system is known as a gastroenterologist. They receive pediatrician training initially, followed by an additional three years of fellowship training in the diagnosis and management of conditions affecting the esophagus, gut, small and large intestine, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. A gastroenterologist gains expertise in specialized tests to detect malfunction as well as all facets of how these organs function.
What diagnostic procedures will pediatric gastroenterologists do?
Pediatric gastroenterologists have received specialized training in conducting digestive system diagnostic tests on children. Endoscopes are specialized tools used to examine the interior of the digestive tract or collect tissue samples (biopsies). Pediatric gastroenterologists can do colonoscopies and esophagogastroduodenoscopies. Pediatric gastroenterologists can also help with issues with swallowing, bleeding, or other gastrointestinal issues. They are highly skilled at managing children’s nutritional issues, including the insertion and maintenance of feeding tubes, intravenous nourishment, and the diagnosis and treatment of newborns, kids, and teenagers with liver disease.
What Does a Pediatric Gastroenterologist Do?

2.Illness of gastroesophageal reflux
5.Irritable bowel syndrome
When should I visit a pediatric gastroenterologist?
The following signs may indicate that your child needs to see a pediatric gastroenterologist:
- Stomach pain
- Loss of appetite
- Diarrhea with blood and mucus
- Bloating and gas
- Weight loss
- If a foreign object was ingested by your child
How is the digestive system of a child different from that of an adult?
The digestive tract needs time to grow after birth, just like other bodily systems. GI problems in infants are frequent during this period of development. For instance, babies typically do not have a fully developed lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscle at the lowest position in the esophagus that helps prevent stomach acid from leaking backward. This causes problems with acid reflux.
If you notice that your newborn is having digestive issues, you should consult a pediatric gastroenterologist because adequate nutrition is intimately linked to a child’s growth and development. GI problems in children are more common than you might think, and some of them start right away.
