At LVPG Pediatric Gastroenterology, we care for a wide range of digestive (gastrointestinal or GI) issues in children.

Health Center at Pennsburg

If your child suffers from a minor concern to a complex or chronic condition, our pediatric gastroenterology specialists – who studied and worked at major children’s hospitals – have the expertise to provide relief.

They have the specialized training to care for infants, children and teens – and deliver the appropriate diagnosis and treatment for their unique digestive, liver or nutritional needs. This is important because children’s digestive systems are different than those of adults, not merely smaller.

The conditions we treat include:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Acid reflux (GERD)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Lactose or gluten intolerance
  • Excessive constipation, diarrhea or vomiting
  • Feeding disorders or nutritional problems, including failure to thrive and obesity
  • Physical abnormalities that affect food movement or absorption, such as pyloric stenosis
  • Bleeding in the digestive tract

Our pediatric gastroenterologists use targeted diagnostic testing that can help them uncover the cause of a problem – a critical capability because children may have a difficult time explaining their symptoms. And an accurate diagnosis ensures that we can provide the most appropriate treatment for your child’s condition.

Our team also works with registered dietitians and social workers who can offer additional services to help you understand and cope with your child’s GI disorder diagnosis.

Convenient appointments are available, so you won’t have to travel away from home to get the care your child needs. And if your child ever needs to be hospitalized, you can continue to stay close to home because we are part of Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital.

LVPG Pediatric Gastroenterology–Pennsburg is in the Health Center at Pennsburg and is a practice of Lehigh Valley Physician Group. To make an appointment, call 888-402-LVHN (5846).
