Beginning in 1980 when Alberto Peña, MD, developed a new operation to repair congenital malformations of the anus and rectum, he and his team, including Jason Frischer, MD, Michael Helmrath, MD, and Belinda Hsi Dickie, MD, have operated on nearly 3,000 children for anorectal malformations, Hirschsprung's disease and other issues related to the bowel.
As the only comprehensive and multidisciplinary center of its kind, the center provides treatment to patients from all over the world. In addition the center’s surgeons frequently travel to teach treatment techniques, and to assist in surgeries with doctors and nurses from around the world. The center has cared for children from 80 countries and from 50 states.

The ARMS Outreach Fund helps provide learning expenses for doctors and nurses wishing to gain experience caring for pediatric colorectal problems. Funds raised are used to promote and support advances regarding colorectal problems in children, including:
This is achieved by supporting research projects (clinical and laboratory) and promoting courses, publications, or learning experiences designed for health related professionals (physicians, nurses, technicians).
You can make a gift to the ARMS Outreach Program to honor the memory of a loved one, to celebrate a special birthday, anniversary or graduation, or to say thank-you in a significant way.
Your gift will contribute to the health and well-being of children and families who depend on Cincinnati Children’s for colorectal procedures and clinics.
When we receive your gift, we will send a card notifying the honoree or family of your generosity. The amount of the gift is never revealed, and you will receive a receipt for your records.
Please make checks payable to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. To designate your gift, attach a note or write ARMS Outreach in the memo section on your check. ARMS Outreach is a nonprofit, tax-deductible foundation.
