Essam Ibraheem Elknawy
Visiting Instructor, Pediatrics - Gastroenterology
BioI am currently serving as a research fellow in pediatric gastroenterology department at Stanford University Medical Centre. I am an ECFMG Certified Physician. Over the past year, I have effectively immersed myself in the U.S. healthcare system. I am actively engaging in outpatient and inpatient services, as well as the operating room. Concurrently, I am involved in various IBD-related research projects. With six months of U.S. clinical experience (USCE) in pediatrics and three years of clinical practice in Egypt, I bring a well-rounded perspective. I graduated with honors from Mansoura University School of Medicine in 2020. My academic excellence is complemented by a robust track record in clinical research, evident through ongoing papers, posters, and oral presentations. My primary role centered on the execution of clinical research, with some laboratory work complementing it. I am currently the primary author for a study titled "Clinical Outcomes and Safety of Infliximab and Vedolizumab as Initial Biological Therapy in Pediatric Patients with Mild to Moderate IBD." Additionally, I contributed as the third author to another research project titled "Patient-Derived Organoids Illuminate a Mitochondrial Bioenergetic Inefficiency Associated with Decoupling in the Colon Epithelia of Pediatric Patients with Ulcerative Colitis." Proficiency in English, both spoken and written, is a point of pride for me. Beyond medicine, I find fulfilment in volunteering within underserved and disadvantaged communities. Athletics play a significant role in my life, and I am passionate about sports such as soccer, basketball, and fitness training. An Egyptian physician raised in the United Arab Emirates, I am dedicated to pursuing a career as a pediatric gastroenterologist in the United States.

Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated), Urology - Divisions
BioDr Elliott is a fellowship trained, pelvic reconstructive surgeon with expertise in neurourology. He participated in the physician-scientist program at Ohio State University, receiving both and MD as well as a PhD in epidemiology. After completing his urologic residency at Stanford University Medical Center in 2010, he became Stanford's first Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellow - a unique two year ABU/ABOG accredited fellowship with both Stanford Urology and Urogynecology faculty training. During this time he received a full experience in pelvic medicine that encompassed both male and female patients. He has clinical and surgical expertise in the management of female pelvic organ prolapse, complex urogynecologic anomalies, overactive bladder, BPH, voiding dysfunction secondary to neurologic disease and both male and female incontinence.
Starting in 2012, Dr Elliott joined the Division of Urology at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, California with a joint appointment at Stanford University Medical Center. In addition to his clinical work, he has authored several book chapters, published multiple journal articles and taught courses at national meetings (AUA, AUGS). His main academic interests include the epidemiologic study of pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence and bladder dysfunction after spinal cord injury. Dr Elliott is currently a member of the SUFU young members committee and the Neurogenic Bladder Research Group.
