Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition
The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition advances the treatment of pediatric gastrointestinal and liver disorders through the coordinated efforts of its patient care, research and educational activities. Internationally recognized for its expertise in transplantation, gastroenterology and nutrition, the division’s clinical program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford cares for more than 10,000 patients each year, making it one of the largest programs in the country. As part of an academic medical center, researchers and clinicians continually work together to advance the standard of care. Exploring the molecular and genetic origins of conditions ranging from GI infections to transplant rejection, they transform their findings into the most advanced diagnostics, drug therapies and procedures available today.
