From the President’s Desk

Welcome to the website of ISPGHAN, a registered society that promotes the study, research and practice of Pediatric gastroenterology in India. We have over 250 members from all over the country, consisting of pediatricians who are interested in the field as well as those who have been formally trained in the specialty. Unlike in the past, today we have many tertiary care centers offering this super-specialty course in India for young aspiring pediatricians. As a subspecialty of pediatrics we have made giant strides in the last three decades. In the 1980’s we dealt essentially with problems of the developing world like acute diarrhea and malnutrition. Today we are able to offer our patients the best of the developed world like liver transplantation, management of inborn errors of metabolism and very advanced endoscopic work. Our members have been presenting research papers at international conferences in Europe and North America, as well as publishing papers in reputed international journals. As a society, we publish an e journal as well as hold multiple academic meets every year in various parts of the country, in addition to our annual conference. This website is a step in our continued endeavor to promote this field in India. As President, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us and improve your understanding of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition; and thus provide better care to all your little patients.
