Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
When your child has a colorectal problem, he or she may feel alone and have a hard time with social situations.
The doctors and staff at the Colorectal Center for Children know the challenges these conditions can cause not only your child, but also your whole family.
That's why we've put together these resources. We hope to answer any questions and help ease your concerns of caring for a child with a colorectal disease.
Rectal irrigations are the best way to clear stool from the colon and prevent "stasis" — problems moving stool through the colon.
Our colonic irrigation guide will help you perform this treatment with the aid of your child's nurse or doctor.
Enemas help clean your child's colon.
The Colorectal Center for Children team offers step-by-step instructions for giving your child an enema. We also provide you with the list of ingredients you need to mix the enema solution.
Our Bowel Management Workshop helps parents and families better understand constipation or fecal incontinence resulting from certain colon and rectal diseases.
See the Bowel Management Workshop schedule and registration information.
