Department and Faculty

Mayo Clinic's pediatric gastroenterology specialists treat conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, including pancreas and liver, that affect children from birth to adolescence. Physicians offer a complete array of diagnostic and endoscopic services for the pediatric age group, including liver transplantation.

As a whole, the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine includes more than 100 pediatric and adolescent physicians specializing in more than 40 areas and providing care ranging from routine checkups to complex surgical procedures.

Annually, Mayo Clinic treats more than 50,000 children and adolescents, including some 5,000 hospital patients. Mayo Clinic pediatric and adolescent surgeons perform more than 8,000 procedures each year.

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology works in very close collaboration with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and the Department of Medicine. This working relationship allows for interactions among the various interest groups that together form the largest gastroenterology and hepatology practice in the country.

Fellows have access to physicians in the Advanced Endoscopy Interest Group, the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Interest Group, the Pancreas Interest Group, the Hepatobiliary Interest Group and the Motility Interest Group, among others.
