    Collapse overview
    Dr. Chu is an Attending Physician in Pediatric Gastroenterology at Texas Children’s Hospital and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. His clinical focus is the evaluation and treatment of children with chronic functional deficits of the digestive system, specifically functional abdominal pain and pediatric feeding difficulties.

    He serves as clinical lead for the Multidisciplinary Abdominal Pain Program at Texas Children’s Hospital, a collaborative initiative with Gastroenterology, Anesthesiology, and Psychology to provide consultative services for children suffering from chronic functional abdominal disorders, also known as disorders of gut-brain interaction. He also serves as clinical lead for the Multidisciplinary Feeding Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, a collaborative initiative with Gastroenterology, Speech Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, and Nutrition to provide outpatient evaluation and treatment of children with chronic feeding difficulties.

    Dr. Chu believes that building strong partnerships with families and allied care providers is the key to fully leveraging the resources of our health system for the care of children. He has been awarded institutionally and regionally for his efforts in clinical care.

    Clinical/Research Interests:

    Dr. Chu cares for the full range of issues in general pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology. He has clinical and research interest in the management of functional abdominal pain and is involved in the Neurogastroenterology program.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
