While offering comprehensive care in many specialty areas, the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition also provides expertise to several interdisciplinary programs.

The Advanced Nutrition program provides multidisciplinary and innovative nutrition support to children who are followed at Cincinnati Children's, in an effort to improve patient outcomes.

It is one of only a few programs in the United States offering advanced nutrition services for children with complex nutritional conditions, including severe malnutrition and complicated gastrostomy / gastrojejunostomy feeding.

The Advanced Nutrition program evaluates patients who are at risk, or already identified with nutritional deficiencies, in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Through collaboration with MDs, RDs, RNs and pharmacists, an individualized plan is formulated for the patient in order to optimize nutrition. Learn more.
