Pediatric Gastroenterology

As a subspecialty of pediatrics and gastroenterology, pediatric gastroenterology emerged. It focuses on treating children's liver, pancreas, and gastrointestinal tract from birth to age 18. Acute diarrhea, persistent vomiting, gastritis, and issues with the development of the gastric tract are the primary diseases it addresses. A pediatric gastroenterologist is qualified to treat a child who has a digestive, liver, or nutritional issue. Children frequently have distinct digestive, hepatic, and nutritional issues from adults. Pediatric gastroenterology necessitates specialized expertise and training.

From the time they are born until they are teenagers, children are treated by pediatric gastroenterologists. They have a lot of experience taking care of infants, children, and adolescents and have decided to focus their entire medical practice on pediatrics.
