Easing the journey through consolidated, patient-focused testing

From serologic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) testing to noninvasive fecal testing for Helicobacter pylori, our pediatric testing menu spans the spectrum of GI conditions. A team of Mayo Clinic’s top-ranked GI experts developed our disease-specific test menu to enable personalized answers that optimize outcomes for the youngest patients.

Our integrated approach to pediatric and adult testing enables coordinated evaluations for family members who display similar gastrointestinal presentations. Our robust genetic testing menu can identify inherited disorders and provide insights about genetic variations associated with disease presence.

Clinically meaningful evaluations

Mayo Clinic’s commitment to meeting the needs of every patient, from the smallest to the tallest, is central to our approach to pediatric gastroenterology testing. Our expansive test offerings, combined with the utilization of emerging technologies, provide physicians with an array of clinically backed choices that enable rapid results for time-sensitive treatment decisions. Because we understand the burden of invasive specimen collection on children, we offer non- or minimally invasive testing options whenever possible.

A focus on diversity and equity in healthcare translates into testing that minimizes iatrogenic healthcare disparities in certain populations. This lowers the risk of poor outcomes related to medical mismanagement and medication-related toxicity.
