About Sarah S Lusman, MD


I provide the full spectrum of digestive care to children of all ages, from babies with reflux and feeding problems, to school-aged children with abdominal pain and constipation, to adolescents with irritable bowel syndrome, to children with celiac disease, food allergies, and inflammatory bowel disease. I also have special expertise in the gastrointestinal manifestations of cystic fibrosis; I completed the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Developing Innovative GastroEnterology Specialty Training (DIGEST) Program, and serve as the gastroenterology representative on the Program Planning Committee for the North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference.


My primary practice is located in Stamford, Connecticut, where I see patients in the office and perform procedures such as endoscopies and colonoscopies. I see patients with cystic fibrosis at both the Northern Manhattan Columbia campus and in Stamford. I value working closely with families and their pediatricians, as well as other subspecialists, to provide compassionate and coordinated care for my patients, and really enjoy serving the families of Fairfield and Westchester counties and beyond.


As the director of fellowship training for the Department of Pediatrics, I am very involved in graduate medical education. I am not only the director of the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program at Columbia, but I also oversee all of the fellowship programs in the department. As director, I established the Pediatric Fellows' Academy, a shared curriculum that promotes the professional development of pediatric fellows. I have been involved in many educational initiatives for pediatric residents and gastroenterology fellows through the North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN). I am currently Vice-Chair of NASPGHAN's Training Committee and recently served as the co-chair of NASPGHAN's Teaching and Tomorrow program for pediatric residents interested in specializing in gastroenterology. I am also the editor of PREP® GI, a peer-reviewed online education program administered by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
