Welcome to Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition

The Department of Pediatrics Section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is a national leader in innovative clinical practice, developing and testing new diagnostics and treatments, and training the next generation of clinicians and researchers.

We are dedicated to -

  • providing state-of-the-art family-based clinical care
  • promoting discovery through cutting-edge basic, clinical, and translational research, and
  • 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.
  • We currently have 21 physician faculty members, five midlevel providers, five PHD faculty, and nine fellows.

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 8,000 outpatient visits per year and perform 3,500 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.
