Our comprehensive, multidisciplinary whole-child approach ensures that every aspect of your child’s condition is fully addressed. By surrounding your child with the brightest, most innovative minds that are dedicated to finding a solution to your child’s unique needs, we take care to the next level. A part of our power is integrating research into our clinical care to offer your child advanced therapies that are not provided elsewhere.

We’re proud to be one of the largest pediatric multidisciplinary care centers in California to offer a full range of treatments for children from newborn to 18. Care highlights include:

  • Nationally ranked pediatric gastroenterologists. Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is ranked as one of the nation’s top 10 children’s hospitals, including a national ranking in Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgery by S. News & World Report.

We specialize in treating children with high-risk conditions who require multifaceted expertise and provide access to the most advanced liver support and heart care available in the country. Despite the fact that we see a large number of children with complex needs, our care outcomes are among the best on the West Coast.
