Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at Washington University and St. Louis Children's Hospital provides comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents with gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic and nutritional disorders. Its full-time staff is supported by extensive experience in diagnostic and therapeutic services, and special training.

The Division also has well-funded and vibrant basic and translational research programs.
