We provide several thousand outpatient visits each year.  Additionally, we offer a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in our office and in our state of the art GI Endoscopy Lab including reflux/impedance monitoring, wireless capsule endoscopy, breath hydrogen analysis, upper endoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy.  We offer the only dedicated pediatric infusion center in the Upstate, where patients can receive intravenous fluids, albumin, and medications such as infliximab, corticosteroids, immune globulin (IVIG), and experimental medications as part of study protocols.  We are active participants in clinical research, participating in numerous clinical trials. 

Treatment for Allergic GI Disorders

We are a referral center for patients with allergic and eosinophilic GI disorders (EGIDs), coordinating our care with allergists and dietitians, participating in clinical trials, and authoring numerous publications relating to the disorders. 

Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Children

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a condition that your child will have for the rest of his or her life; therefore, it is helpful to learn as much about it as you can and to maintain good communication and relationships with your child’s care providers.

As a result, we've created this resource guide for our patients with IBD and their families. Feel free to use it and reference it as much as you need it. But, if you ever need more, please call our office. We're here to help you and your child lead a happier, healthier life!
