Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology

  • Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Research

    Faculty members in pediatric and adolescent gynecology are conducting a number of studies that focus on improving reproductive health outcomes for girls and young women. Our team focuses on the impact that early exposures can have on long-term reproductive outcomes and fertility. 

    Specific research foci include: 

    • Diagnosis and evaluation of ovarian torsion
    • Evaluation of girls and adolescents with menorrhagia
    • Fertility preservation
    • Hormone replacement therapy in gonadal insufficiency
    • Long-term outcomes in women with anorectal malformation

    We continue to receive research funding from outside Cincinnati Children’s from the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists and industry grants.  Our collaborative approach is evidenced by our many multidisciplinary projects with other divisions at Cincinnati Children’s, including Pediatric Surgery, Endocrinology, Oncology and Adolescent Medicine.  We conduct meaningful research in addition to training future pediatric and adolescent gynecologic investigators through our nationally recognized fellowship program.
