Bowel Sounds: Marc Benninga, MD - Intractable Constipation: The Dutch Perspective *CME AVAILABLE*
Bowel Sounds: Marc Benninga, MD - Intractable Constipation: The Dutch Perspective
In our first international episode, Dr. Peter Lu and Dr. Temara Hajjat cross the Atlantic (virtually) to talk to the illustrious Dr. Marc Benninga from Emma Children's Hospital/Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Dr. Benninga is not only our first guest from our sister society ESPGHAN, but also the first Olympian and perhaps the first with a Wikipedia page.
We bring in the European authority on pediatric constipation to talk about how he evaluates and treats children with constipation that has persisted despite our usual treatment with oral medications. We compare and contrast the practices in the United States and the Netherlands.
Produced by: Peter Lu, MD
