About the Center for Pediatric Eosinophilic Disorders
EoE was unknown 30 years ago, but today, diagnoses of this disorder are increasing rapidly.
Currently we treat 1,500 infants, children and teenagers with EoE — the largest clinical population in the world. Our patients come from all over the world.
Coordinated care from a team of specialties
The team of specialists who will diagnose, treat and manage your child's care come from four disciplines — gastroenterology, allergy, nutrition and pathology.
Our Center coordinator is your personal liaison with the team and will help you by:
- Scheduling appointments to minimize your trips to the hospital
- Getting you the information and training you need to manage your child's illness
- Assuring that the team physicians caring for your child have continuous communication about your child's case
Looking for answers through research
Our large clinical population provides an extensive source of data for research. Currently, we are expanding our investigations and are looking for answers to these questions:
- What causes EoE and other eosinophilic disorders, and how can they be prevented?
- What role does genetics play in the disease?
- How can we improve diagnosis and disease management techniques?
- What are the long-term health effects of EoE?
