Constipation is one of the most common reasons children visit a pediatric gastroenterologist. Our highly trained physicians offer family-centered, comprehensive care to children dealing with this uncomfortable issue. While medications are effective and often necessary at the start of treatment, dietary changes are key to establishing good health.
Our doctors and dietitian work closely together to review the child’s dietary history and offer recommendations to improve the child’s health and well-being. We provide guidance in healthy food choices to treat and prevent constipation, and reduce the need for long-term laxative therapy.
