The Reconstructive Pelvic Medicine Clinic treats problems with parts of the body in the pelvic area. The pelvic area includes the urinary tract, large intestine (colon), anus, rectum, internal sex organs and genitals. Children may have problems with the way these parts work because of how the parts formed before birth or because of an illness or injury that happened later.
Many Experts, One Clinic
Our clinic brings together many healthcare providers who work as a team to diagnose and treat pelvic problems. We combine the knowledge and skills of experts from General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Motility, Gynecology, Urology, Radiology and Pathology.
Our team approach means your child gets coordinated care each step of the way from experts who know your child’s full treatment plan. We arrange your clinic visits so your child can see all the providers they need to see in one day, in one place, instead of having to make separate visits.
The team meets before clinic to discuss the needs of each patient coming in that day and after clinic to ensure we have all plans in place for each patient. We also meet twice a month to discuss and plan for patients who have upcoming visits.
Care for Children, Adolescents and Young Adults
Each child is different, and children’s needs change as they grow and develop. We tailor treatment to your child, working closely with your family through all stages of life to help with concerns from toilet training to puberty, sexual function and childbearing. We truly see this as a lifelong partnership.
Besides treating your child’s health issues, we understand that pelvic problems can be embarrassing or uncomfortable to deal with. We are careful to take your child’s feelings and needs into account.
Dedicated to Improving Quality of Life
Your child’s quality of life is our main focus. Along with providing the most advanced medical and surgical treatments, we offer a range of services and support to help your child live fully and actively — like a one-week Bowel Management Treatment Program and mental health support.
We can help connect you with a community of patients and families with experiences similar to yours — through social media, camps, support groups and other resources.
We invite you and your child to fill out surveys about quality of life to help identify your family’s needs and measure our success in meeting those needs.
