We are dedicated to -
- providing state-of-the-art family-based clinical care

- being at the forefront of training pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology fellows and pediatric residents.
Clinical and research programs address all aspects of digestive diseases, including those involving the esophagus, intestinal tract, liver, and pancreas.
- Our faculty provide national leadership in many NIH-funded research networks and professional organizations.
- Our highly rated fellowship program is one of a handful funded by the NIH.
Most of our clinical services are provided at Children's Hospital Colorado, in Aurora, Colorado, and include many outreach and satellite clinics, enabling our multidisciplinary clinical team to see approximately 17,000 outpatient visits per year and perform close to 4,000 GI procedures. We have the only dedicated pediatric GI procedure unit in the region.
Our research programs (funded by the NIH, foundations, and philanthropy) align with our clinical programs and focus on liver diseases, liver failure, and liver transplantation, inflammatory bowel disease, eosinophilic diseases of the GI tract, childhood obesity, short bowel syndrome, and celiac disease.
