Bio

Dr. Douglas Barnhart’s daily clinical practice includes all common pediatric surgical problems including inguinal hernias, undescended testicles, hydroceles and feeding access (gastrostomy tube placement). He has a particular interest in minimal access surgery including the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux, congenital lung lesions, and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis). In addition to treating common problems, he has several areas of focus. He is a member of the Children’s Oncology Group with a particular interest in renal tumors (Wilms tumor) and neuroblastoma. Feeding access and treatment of gastroesophageal reflux in children with neurologic problems is also an area of special interest in Dr. Barnhart’s practice and academic work.

Dr. Barnhart sees patient’s at Primary Children’s Hospital and at Primary Children’s-Riverton. One of his goals is to work with parents to shorten hospital stays for children.

Dr. Barnhart’s clinical interests also include the following conditions: Inguinal hernia, Umbilical hernia, Undescended testicle, Hydrocele, Cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder), Gastrostomy (placement of a stomach tube), Appendectomy (removal of the appendix), Vascular access (ports and central lines), Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Gastroesophageal reflux disease, Chest wall deformities (pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum), Pediatric endocrine surgery (thyroid and adrenal tumors/pancreas surgery)
