Pediatric Intestinal Rehabilitation Program

The intestinal rehabilitation program at Children’s Health℠ is the only one of its kind in North Texas

We recognize that every child is unique and we aim to find management strategies that work for the entire family. Our recommendations are accompanied by extensive training for family members and care providers to help manage long-term medical needs and enjoy the best quality of life. 

We provide integrated care, including both inpatient and outpatient management. Our multidisciplinary team includes gastroenterologists, surgeons, nursing, wound/ostomy, dietitians, speech therapy, neonatology and social work.

Program highlights

  • Currently we treat patients from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico and Arizona.
  • We are the only center in North Texas providing Comprehensive Intestinal Rehabilitation since 2007.
  • Research performed by our team includes intestinal bacterial overgrowth, catheter related bloodstream infections and central vein thrombosis.


I have 1,000% trust in Dr. Channa because she is so in tune with our care. She translates the treatments for this rare disorder into real-life applications, because what’s the point if Ava doesn’t have a good quality of life?
