This book celebrates the emergence of knowledge in the field of pediatric gastroenterology (GI) and is written for the primary care clinician to help update knowledge in this important area. The current and future shortage of pediatric gastroenterologists necessitates steady, rejuvenated information on GI disorders for primary care clinicians as they care for the child and adolescent with complex gastroenterologic dilemmas and disorders. Much has been learned about pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology in the 21st century as research continues around the world despite many challenges such as the 2019-2023 COVID-19 pandemic. This second edition of the editors/writers’ discussion on pediatric gastroentologic (GI) and hepatic disorders reflect on such updated knowledge that considers medical and surgical perspectives including dealing with such complex complications as infection and pain.
