At the Colorectal Center, children receive comprehensive care from specialists who truly understand the challenges they face and are dedicated to helping them experience the best quality of life possible.

Our care team includes highly trained, experienced physicians who specialize in:

  • Colorectal surgery
  • Gastroenterology
  • Gynecology
  • Urology
  • Behavioral medicine
  • Nutrition
  • Pelvic floor physical therapy
  • Nursing

The team communicates frequently about each child’s care and makes decisions together, providing families with one cohesive treatment plan. We schedule clinic appointments and tests in a coordinated way so that visits are as convenient and efficient as possible.

A supportive environment

Over time we develop close relationships with patients, many of whom return to our center for long-term follow-up care. We encourage families to share their ideas, concerns and questions to help us better understand their child’s needs.

We are dedicated to:

  • Understanding your family’s goals for treatment
  • Including you in decisions about your child’s care
  • Building a strong relationship with your family that is based on trust
  • Answering your questions and providing reassurance
  • Listening to your concerns, even if an immediate solution isn’t available

Dedicated, caring nurses

Our physicians have a strong, personal commitment to each patient’s well-being and are integrally involved in their care. But just as important to the patient experience are our nurses, who have a high level of expertise in pediatric colorectal medicine. Your child’s nurse will become your “go to” person at the Colorectal Center, available in clinic, by phone and by email to answer your questions and provide support every step of the way.
