Research and Innovation

At the Weight Loss Surgery program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, you and your child will be working with doctors and nurses who are at the forefront of their field.

The doctors on the Adolescent Weight Loss Surgery team have focused, in particular, on minimally invasive surgery and medical devices and have developed guidelines for adolescent weight loss surgery through their work with the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The team has also worked with underserved populations, including Hispanic and Asian-American populations, and strives to understand the impact of stigma on obese persons.
