Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology
The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology provides comprehensive resources for the diagnosis and therapy of the full range of children's digestive and liver disorders. The Division is committed to excellence in clinical care, research and education. The faculty of nine, board-certified gastroenterologists, under the direction of Marla Dubinsky, MD, perform basic, translational and clinical research. Collectively, they are published in over one-hundred, peer-reviewed journals.
With the opening of the new Susan and Leonard Feinstein Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinical Center, Mount Sinai will have one of the largest programs for pediatric Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis in the country, and a state-of-the-art outpatient facility. The Center, which combines Mount Sinai's work on Inflammatory Bowel Disease in children with the adult IBD program, creates an unprecedented opportunity for comprehensive research and collaboration in the field. The Center also helps transition children seamlessly into the adult IBD program. Children and young adults from across the country, and around the world, visit the Center each year to seek innovative, advanced care from our experts.
Our Division has a team of pediatric hepatologists dedicated exclusively to expertise in the care of children with liver disease. Mount Sinai is also one of the largest and most successful pediatric liver transplant centers in the United States. Clinical investigation continues on children who have undergone liver, and intestinal transplantation to define better ways for managing outcomes for these patients.
All of the programs within the Division are doing cutting-edge research on genetics, personalized medicine, and understanding the immune system to advance the treatment of disease of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.
