The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is dedicated to providing the highest quality medical care and state-of-the-art techniques in the evaluation and treatment of gastrointestinal, liver and nutritional disorders.

Our team of pediatric gastroenterologists, hepatologists, certified nurse practitioners, nurses and dietitians help children with symptoms related to chronic abdominal pain, reflux, constipation, vomiting and nausea. We also treat specialty conditions including inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), biliary atresia, hepatitis, celiac disease, eosinophilic gastrointestinal conditions, obesity and short bowel syndrome.

Our division’s experienced gastroenterologists see patients from all over the country — and around the world — to confirm diagnoses and provide second opinions about treatment. Some children who come to us for second opinions may decide to continue their treatment at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, while others will return home for treatment after our clinicians have confirmed the child’s diagnosis and treatment options. 

We provide care at the David M. Rubenstein Child Health Building on the Johns Hopkins Medicine’s East Baltimore campus, as well as several other locations in Baltimore, Frederick, Howard and Anne Arundel counties. Our team performs many diagnostic tests and endoscopies at The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center building.
