Welcome to Kisholoy Children's Hospital
The medical discipline of gastroenterology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gut and intestinal system along with the liver and pancreatic systems. Diseases afflicting adults are quite different from those afflicting children. In children, gastrointestinal disorders are the most common illness encountered in practice with most hospital admissions for children pertaining to infections or other diseases of the gastrointestinal system. In fact, acute gastroenteritis ( acute infection of the gastrointestinal system ) in children is the leading cause of hospitalization worldwide, particularly in developing countries such as India. Apart from infections, various other diseases including : birth defects of formation of the gut, liver diseases, pancreatic diseases, food allergies, etc affect children throughout the pediatric age group.
Proper diagnosis and treatment is essential in children as delay can be detrimental and can even lead to death. Closely associated with the service of children’s gastroenterology, is the nutritional service department. Nutrition is part and parcel of gastroenterology. Growth failure in many children is often due to gastrointestinal disease.
