Description

Chronic abdominal pain is a common problem that affects up to 20 percent of all school-aged children and teens.

Despite how many youth struggle with abdominal pain, there is no clear agreement among medical professionals about how best to manage it.

What professionals do agree on is that abdominal pain is complex and can be difficult to treat effectively.

Craig Friesen, MD, is here to explain how the Gastroenterology Division at Children’s Mercy uses a biopsychosocial approach to chronic pain and has delivered resolution or near resolution of symptoms in 70-80 percent of patients within six weeks.
