Advocate's approach to excellence in gastroenterology
Specialized professionals at Advocate Health Care works with children and adults to treat gastrointestinal problems and cope with chronic conditions. Nutrition specialists help patients improve and manage conditions through proper diet. We also work with children to help them recover feeding and swallowing skills they may have lost during illness or due to injury.
Advocate offers technological advances, such as our pediatric GI lab with video monitor, to simplify the identification and treatment of:
- Abdominal pain
- Cholestatic liver disease
- Crohn's disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Ulcerative colitis
We encourage you to take advantage of the help available through our ongoing support group meetings. Many of our patients meet regularly to support each other in how to live with a chronic condition.
