Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition – Sant Joan de Déu Hospital
In the Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Service we serve children with complex pathologies, with motility problems, metabolic diseases, liver disorders, inflammatory bowel disease or eosinophilic esophagitis, among other pathologies. We also treat patients with common gastrointestinal problems, such as gastroesophageal reflux or abdominal pain. Given the frequent involvement of digestive and nutritional pathology in multiple chronic childhood diseases, we actively participate in many of the multidisciplinary units of the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona for a better approach to these pathologies. Frequently, we are consulted for a second opinion in children who have digestive symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, growth and development problems), but who do not have a clear diagnosis.
