Nutrition & Gastroenterology

About Our Nutrition & Gastroenterology Services

If your child suffers from abdominal pain, chronic problems related to eating, failure to thrive, or weight loss, our consultative services may be able to help.  

The Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Division at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital provides a full range of services for children with gastrointestinal, liver, and nutritional disorders.  We're committed to family-focused care – that means we consult with the all members of a patient's health care team – the child's pediatrician or family physician – as well as the family to determine the best course of treatment.
