The Digestive Health Institute at Children’s Hospital Colorado has one of the top-ranked pediatric gastroenterology and GI surgery programs in the country. Our team of physicians are nationally recognized experts in areas of GI, liver, pancreatic and nutritional disorders.

Below is a list of our programs:

Aerodigestive Program

The Aerodigestive Program is dedicated to providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment and services for children with complex airway, respiratory and gastrointestinal tract disorders. The program is one of the most complete aerodigestive multidisciplinary programs in the United States. 

Colorado Center for Celiac Disease 

Experts at the Colorado Center for Celiac Disease evaluate and treat children and adolescents with suspected or known celiac disease and gluten-related disorders. The center is the first of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region and one of only a handful of programs across the nation that focuses solely on pediatric celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

Pediatric Liver Center

The Pediatric Liver Center is the only provider of complete pediatric multispecialty liver disease and liver transplant services in the region. The center's staff is internationally recognized for contributions leading to new discoveries in diagnosis, treatment and surgery for pediatric hepatobiliary (liver, gallbladder and bile related) disorders.

Liver Transplant Program 

The Liver Transplant Program within the Pediatric Liver Center offers a unique and specialized program devoted to the care of children with who require liver transplantation. The program provides comprehensive multidisciplinary care for children, from evaluation for possible candidacy, to transplant, to long-term follow up.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center

The Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease undetermined and immunodeficiencies causing intestinal inflammation in children, teens and young adults up to 18-years-old.

Intestinal Rehabilitation Program

The Intestinal Rehabilitation Program sees and treats infants and children with intestinal failure who require intravenous nutrition. Digestive disorders that are in need of intestinal rehabilitation include short bowel syndrome, gastroschisis, intestinal atresias, motility disorders or other reasons for feeding intolerance.  

Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Diseases Program 

The Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Diseases Program provides state-of-the-art care to patients affected by eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs), including eosinophilic esophagitis.  We are the only multidisciplinary program caring for children with EGIDs in the Midwestern United States and Rocky Mountain region. 

Advanced and Therapeutic Endoscopy Clinic (ATECh) 

Since many times the physician or specialist recommending advanced endoscopic procedures is not necessarily the ones actually performing the procedure, the ATECh clinic offers a venue for families to meet with the endoscopist prior to the procedure.  During the meeting, the endoscopist will review the specifics of the procedure in a relaxed and unpressured environment, much in the way that patients and families would naturally expect to meet their surgeon before undergoing a surgery.

General Gastroenterology Program

The General Gastroenterology Program within the Digestive Health Institute provides care to children with a broad range of digestive diseases. Our multi-disciplinary team strives to deliver family-centered care and includes dedicated physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, dietitians and social workers.
