      Dr. Emily R. Perito is an assistant professor at UCSF who specializes in pediatric liver disease, pediatric liver transplant, and pediatric gastroenterology. She completed fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology and in Pediatric Transplant Hepatology at UCSF. During her fellowship, Dr. Perito also earned a Master's Degree in Clinical Research at UCSF. She is board-certified in pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology.

      Dr. Perito treats all types of pediatric gastrointestinal and liver diseases, in all ages of patients from newborns through young adults. She is a member of UCSF's multi-disciplinary pediatric liver transplant team with expertise in the care of children with pediatric liver disease before and after transplant. Her research interests focus on long-term outcomes after pediatric liver transplant and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in children. She is currently leading a study about post-transplant metabolic syndrome in pediatric liver transplant recipients.

      Before coming to UCSF, Dr. Perito did her pediatrics training and medical school at Columbia University in New York City.
