Enteral Care Program
Interventional Radiology Center
IR procedures are a vital centerpiece in hospital-based medicine today, providing some of the best treatment and patient outcomes. At Phoenix Children’s, the Interventional Radiology Center is also expanding to add outpatient services, giving families even more support after they leave the hospital.
With coordinated expertise from specialists in IR, pediatric surgery, GI and the Emergency Department, our Enteral Care Program (for patients with feeding tubes) is one of the few pediatric programs of its kind in the country. Through the program, we provide routine feeding tube care, enhance family-centered care for these patients, and reduce the number of emergency department visits they have for urgent or emergent feeding tube issues.
Patients and families who participate in the program receive ongoing education to help them handle tube-related matters at home. They also have direct access to IR providers for questions or concerns via a dedicated questions line: 602-933-6945.
