Alberto Peña, MD, Colorectal Center

  • Important Topics

    The Peña Colorectal Center at Cincinnati Children’s has developed information on anorectal malformations, associated defects, outcomes and other related information that may affect your child.  These topics are often brought up as questions asked by the patients or are presented as additional information the physicians will need to address as it relates to patient care.

    The Peña Colorectal Center staff members believe supplying information is a vital component to providing the highest level of care to patients, as well as support to their families, physicians and other healthcare professionals.
