About the department
The Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology at the Pediatric Diagnostic Hospital M1 offers the full range of services in this medical field. The department specializes in the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, digestive system, pancreas, gallbladder and liver. All examinations are conducted by highly competent doctors with many years of experience, which guarantees excellent quality of medical services. The department is headed by Dr. Marion Eckert.
The department deals with the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents who suffer from pain due to food intake, diarrhea, vomiting, too frequent or painful bowel movements, abdominal pain, constipation, bloating and nausea. In addition, the department specializes in developmental disorders, in which weight gain does not correspond to growth.
Quite often specialists of the department have to deal with food intolerance (celiac disease – gluten intolerance) or impaired digestion of carbohydrate elements, such as lactose, fructose and sorbitol.Also, the department’s scope of tasks includes both diagnostics and treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, for example, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
The main component of therapy is the regulation of nutrition according to a special diet plan. Thus, it is possible to control both child’s growth and weight. In many cases, drug therapy is used. The doctor selects the necessary drug or combination of several drugs for each child individually, taking into account the specific clinical situation.
