Pediatric Eosinophilic Disorders
Dallas Eosinophilic Esophagitis Program (DEEP)
The Dallas Eosinophilic Esophagitis Program at Children’s Health℠ is integrated with the UT Southwestern Esophageal Diseases Center to treat patients with every type of esophageal disease.
Program co-directors, Aakash Goyal, M.D., Pediatric Gastroenterologist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at UT Southwestern, and Christopher Parrish, M.D., Allergist and Assistant Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern, are proud to bring comprehensive treatment to North Texas.
Conditions We Treat
- Eosinophilic Disorders
- Eosinophilic colitis
- Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE)
- Eosinophilic gastroenteritis
A Collaborative Approach
Since EoE is a complex condition that has a significant impact on a child’s physical and mental health, the multidisciplinary DEEP team includes:
- Pediatric gastroenterologists
- Pediatric allergist
- Child psychologist
- Pediatric allergy dietitian
At the DEEP clinic, a child will see all of these specialists – under one roof – to appropriately diagnose EoE and create a personalized care plan. Motivating children to follow their EoE care plan is critical, as the condition can lead to narrowing of the esophagus and the need to stretch the esophagus periodically if left untreated
