Baylor Scott & White McLane Niños

Expert care for your child's bowel, liver or stomach condition

Pediatric gastroenterologists treat children who have conditions that affect the organs in the digestive system, including the stomach, liver, and bowel. They also help children with feeding and eating issues. The gastrointestinal system is complex, particularly in children. As they grow and develop, gastrointestinal disorders can change.

At Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s, our gastroenterology team treats children with cases that range from mild acid reflux to serious bowel and nutrition issues that are critically important as children develop.
