Children's gastroenterology

Children's gastroenterology is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system.


Our leading paediatric gastroenterologists treat children with gastrointestinal illness.

Offering comprehensive care for all areas of the digestive system – the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, small intestine and colon – our specialists work in multidisciplinary teams to find the best treatment for your child.

Common paediatric GI conditions we treat include gastro-oesophageal reflux, Coeliac disease, Crohn's disease and infant colic.

And we also offer the latest diagnostic tests such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy, pH studies and breath tests.

Our specialist consultants

Please note that we do not provide a paediatric intensive care unit at Cromwell Hospital. However, any deteriorating child will be quickly assessed and stabilised by a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) trained in paediatric intensive care, supported by an on-call Paediatric Intensive Care Consultant, before being transferred to the most appropriate paediatric intensive care provider by the Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS).

“I had a great experience at the Cromwell Hospital; the staff were amazing, and is another level of professionalism compared to other hospitals I’ve stayed in.”
