Dr. Hyman is the recipient of the 2007 IFFGD Research Award for Senior Investigator – Pediatrics. Dr. Hyman’s research focused on pediatric gastrointestinal motility disorders, chronic visceral pain, and children’s functional gastrointestinal disorders. He found antroduodenal and colon manometry useful in characterizing the physiology in chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and discriminating chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction from Munchausen syndrome by proxy (now pediatric condition falsification) and pain-associated disability syndrome.
