About the Center

The Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, UCSD specializes in the testing, diagnosis, and treatment for children with eosinophilic esophagitis, gastroenteritis, and/or colitis. Our clinical team integrates patient education with therapy using a team approach for integrated care that includes Allergy, Immunology, Gastroenterology, Nurse Coordinator, Dietician, Pathology, and Clinical Research Coordinator. The clinic works in conjunction with the Aceves Lab at the University of California San Diego, School of Medicine to complete clinical and translational studies to gain better insight into the impact and mechanisms of tissue remodeling in eosinophilic esophagitis patients (EoE). By coupling with the adult UCSD physicians, we will be able to also help adults with eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders EGIDs. San Diego has been a site for patient education conferences in the past in collaboration with the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders and looks forward to continued collaborations with patient advocacy groups to meet the CEGIR mission. The UCSD/RCHSD clinical site of CEGIR looks forward to being an integral part of the CEGIR mission to improve the lives of individuals with eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders by contributing to the multicenter innovative research and clinical expertise that CEGIR aims to provide.
