Living with GI Pain is challenging and can impact an individual's
quality of life. The physicians and staff at the Stanford GI Pain
Clinic understand and are here to help.
The Stanford GI Pain Clinic offers an innovative, multi-disciplinary
approach to helping patients manage gastrointestinal pain from
undiagnosed causes as well as pain resulting from specific GI
disorders and diseases.
The goal of the GI Pain Clinic is to streamline patient care by
expediting access to pain specialists and creating a comprehensive
pain management plan tailored to the patient's unique needs.
The GI Pain Clinic uses a collaborative approach to patient care,
which is especially helpful when working on challenging cases. Once a
patient is assessed at the GI Pain Clinic, they may be referred to the
Pain Management Center. At the Pain Management Center, patients
may see up to three pain specialists in one appointment. These
specialists then work with the gastroenterologist and patient to
develop a treatment plan.
Many of our patients seek help for the underlying causes of their
pain at the following Stanford Digestive Health Center Clinics:

In addition to treating patients who are seen at the Stanford
Digestive Health Center, the GI Pain Clinic also treats patients with
undiagnosed or poorly managed GI pain.
