Pediatric Gastroenterology

Overview

Gastrology is staffed with double board certified specialists (pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology) whose scope of care includes digestive, liver, biliary tract and pancreatic disease for infants, children and adolescents as well as the entire spectrum of nutritional disorders.

In addition to their main office at the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters, the GI Division operates satellite offices in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Newport News. They also make monthly visits to St. Mary's Home for Disabled Children. Over 7,000 office visits, 300 admissions to the GI service and 400 inpatient consultations occur each year, yielding approximately 1,500 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures annually.

This Division received the "Chairman's Award for Excellence in Clinical Education" in 2004 and again in 2007.
