Bowel Management Workshop

Does your child suffer constipation or fecal incontinence due to Hirschsprung disease, anorectal malformation, or spina bifida? The Bowel Management Workshop presented by the Colorectal Center for Children at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has been developed to help patients and families better understand these issues and achieve a better quality of life and social integration.
