Inside Stanford Digestive Health

News from the Gastroenterology Division.


W. Ray Kim, MD

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the winter/spring issue of Inside Stanford Digestive Health. As I hope you are familiar, Stanford Medicine Digestive Health continues to grow in its depth and breadth. We now have 60 clinically active full-time faculty in our midst, practicing and leading research. We train 15 ACGME GI fellows as well as additional advanced specialty fellows. In addition to our own expertise ranging from advanced endoscopy and endoscopic surgery and to community gastroenterology, unique multidisciplinary programs including inflammatory bowel disease, esophagology, pelvic health, neurogastroenterology and hepatology and liver transplantation are thriving. All of these growths have now allowed us to put together a state-of-the-art CME program that we are so proud to announce in this Newsletter.

Herein, we feature the latest from Stanford Medicine Digestive Health; (1) a new landmark COVID-19 study originating from Dr. Jeffrey Glenn, (2) our own critical assessment of computer-aided endoscopic detection of polyps, (3) adult congenital heart disease program catering to adult patients with complex congenital heart disease developing progressive liver disease, and (4) our new open access program for Transient Elastography for patients with liver fibrosis and those with portal hypertension.

We hope you enjoy the exciting contents in this issue. As always, we look forward to hearing back from you.

Ray Kim
