Stanford Medicine Children's Health Center for IBD and Celiac Disease

At Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, we are pleased to provide children and young adults with the very latest solutions for a wide variety of digestive inflammatory diseases. We’ve brought together tremendous minds and promising innovations to advance your child’s care by providing access to unique programs and active research projects that transform ideas into treatments for excellent outcomes. We understand how worrisome and all-consuming your child’s health can be, and we are driven to improve their health so they can live their best life.

To this end, we take a multidisciplinary, whole-child approach that ensures we care for every aspect of your child’s health and wellness. Our care team has physicians who subspecialize in ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and very early-onset IBD (VEO-IBD), along with rarer digestive inflammatory diseases. Our nationally renowned gastroenterologists, pediatric IBD surgeons, and integrative medicine GI doctors are supported by specialized dietitians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, pharmacists, and clinical researchers to provide your child with well-rounded, informed care.

We’re expanding on what is currently possible when it comes to treating digestive inflammatory diseases. As a part of Stanford University and Stanford Medicine, we’ve deeply embedded transformative bench-to-bedside research within our care, bringing your child state-of-the-art care options supported by the most recent research. Currently, we are exploring epithelial biology to gain insights into the vital tissue that lines the intestines, studying the connection between your child’s gut microbiome and immunology, and building a biorepository of patient samples to learn how biology and genes work together to cause or prevent disease. We welcome patients to participate in our clinical trials.
