She is also interested in therapeutic endoscopy with a focus in the use of double balloon enteroscopy in the treatment of children with small intestinal disease.

She initiated and developed the hospital's first pediatric cancer genetic counseling clinic which began in March 2011. In 2014, she co-founded the hospital's multidisciplinary pediatric polyposis program with Drs. Stephen Hunger and Edward Hoffenberg. The program has expanded to include a team of 2 gastroenterologists, 2 genetic counselors, and providers from surgery, oncology, social work, ostomy nursing, and others. Kami has co-authored multiple publications on hereditary gastrointestinal and polyposis syndromes and has a longstanding clinical and research interest in genetic counseling issues and considerations for this patient population.
