She wanted to create a multidisciplinary transgender clinic that served as one medical home for the patients and their families. The Stanford Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Clinic provides individualized care in pediatric endocrinology, adolescent medicine, pediatric urology and gynecology, child psychiatry and psychology, social work and more recently pediatric plastic surgical services to this population.
