PEDIATRIC FEEDING TEAM

Feeding disorders are common and can have far reaching effects on the nutritional and developmental outcome of children. We believe in early intervention with a multidisciplinary team, including a gastroenterologist and/or a pediatric nurse practitioner specializing in feeding disorders, pediatric dietician, and feeding therapist.

We utilize a medical/oro-motor/behavioral approach to feeding disorders to:

• Treat medical conditions that may be causing the aversion
• Utilize behavioral modification techniques when indicated
• Treat oro-motor problems
• Educate families to learn feeding strategies for home

Our team services families across Southeastern North Carolina. We coordinate with primary care providers, sub-specialists, home health nurses, dieticians, and speech/occupational therapists.

We offer the following testing:

• Modified barium swallow study
• Upper GI series
• Gastric Emptying Scan
• Ph/Impedence probe
• Endoscopy
• Polysonogram
