Learn below how children with colorectal anomalies are finding help and hope through both surgical and medical management offered by our center.
Many children with these disorders have difficulty integrating into society because of the social stigma of their conditions. The goal of the Colorectal Center is to provide a comprehensive diagnosis, appropriate treatment and, when necessary, an intestinal rehabilitation program based on numerous potential protocols, all under the supervision of the Colorectal Center’s team, to help the patient and family integrate into society and achieve the best possible quality of life. Staff in the Colorectal Center also help patients and families prepare for the challenges that may arise regarding puberty, sexual function, and child-bearing as they relate to some colorectal issues.
Our Colorectal Center is staffed by pediatric surgeons, gastroenterologists, a motility specialist, urologists, orthopedic specialists, a gynecologist, and pediatric nurses and advanced practice providers that specialize in the treatment of wounds, colostomies, and bowel management. Pediatric radiologists and pathologists specializing in diseases of the colon are involved and analyze each case.
The center also works closely with the following ancillary services: Physical Therapist, Wound Care Nurses, Child Life Specialists, and Social Workers.
