Pediatric Pancreas Center

Our Pediatric Pancreas Center is recognized as a center of excellence by the National Pancreas Foundation for the care and treatment of pancreatitis. We are also a contributing member of INSPPIRE (INternational Study Group of Pediatric Pancreatitis: In search for a cuRE project), an NIH-funded research project comprised of 26 pediatric centers around the world focused on children with pancreatitis.

We are committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate and family-centric care for children with pancreas diseases.

Our expert staff includes gastroenterologists, nutritionists, nurses and social workers who specialize in diagnosing and treating an array of pancreatic conditions, including acute recurrent pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis.

We work in close collaboration with pediatric experts in surgery, pain management, anesthesiology, endocrinology and radiology to offer complete medical, endoscopic and surgical care for your child.

Cystic fibrosis is an example of a medical condition associated with hereditary pancreatitis. Learn more at the Johns Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Center.
