We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating children’s conditions requiring surgery. The following is a list of conditions we treat and procedures we perform.
During fetal development, a sac surrounding an infant's normally descending sexual organs does not close, allowing the intestine to bulge through the opening, or fluid build-up.
A congenital defect in which a part of the intestines fails to form properly, resulting in an obstruction or blockage.
A congenital defect of the abdominal wall allowing some abdominal organs to protrude through it. A translucent membrane or sac covers the protruding organs.
A rare condition which occurs when the uterus fills with menstrual blood. Symptoms are typically a lack of a menstrual period, recurrent pelvic pain, and a pelvic mass.
A protrusion of tissue or an organ through an opening or weakness in the muscle wall that usually contains it. Infants can be born with them.
A condition which occurs when the intestinal wall is missing the cells which signal the muscles in the large intestine to push stool towards the anus, causing an intestinal blockage.
A narrowing of the lower portion of the stomach that leads into the small intestine, resulting in food not moving easily into the intestine for digestion.
In mild cases, scattered small purple spots on the skin, progressing to increased bruising and nosebleeds and, rarely, bleeding in the GI tract, urinary tract and in the brain.
Birth abnormality caused by improper development of the rectum and anus during pregnancy, the opening at the rectum/anus is absent, so stool cannot leave the body.
A birth defect involving a malformation of the intestinal tract; it occurs while a fetus is forming in its mother's uterus.
The most common cause of intestinal obstruction in children between the ages of 3 months and 3 years, when one segment of the intestine slips inside another.
Also called celiac axis syndrome and Dunbar syndrome, a rare condition resulting in severe abdominal pain after eating, nausea, vomiting, and weight loss.
