Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) consists of a group of chronic conditions that cause inflammation of the digestive tract. Because IBD is a chronic condition, children often need years of treatments.

Pediatric Neurogastroenterology and Motility Disorders

During normal digestion, rhythmic muscle contractions move food through the gastrointestinal tract. In a child with a motility disorder, these contractions may be either abnormal or absent. Motility disorders can be the result of a problem with the muscle itself, or with the nerves or hormones that control the muscle's contractions.
