What makes pediatric gastroenterology at McLane Children's special?

At McLane Children’s Scott & White, 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.

A collaborative family-centered approach to care ensures that the best diagnostic and treatment therapies are utilized by a compassionate team of caregivers dedicated to each child we see.

At McLane Children's, we have Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Infusion Centers at our Temple and Round Rock locations. Our pediatric IBD team includes physicians, nurses, pediatric surgeons, nutritionists, social workers, psychologists, and researchers. Each member of our team gives your child expert care from the time of diagnosis through the long-term management of diseases including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and indeterminate colitis.

Our gastroenterology team uses state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and treatment programs. We now use pill-sized transmitters to help diagnose acid-level disorders in the esophagus and cameras to painlessly examine a child’s small intestines.
