Does my child need colorectal surgery?
Many colorectal conditions require a surgical procedure to improve your child’s bowel and bladder function and quality of life. Prior to your child’s first appointment at the Comprehensive Colorectal Center (CCC), the colorectal team will review the radiology reports, lab results and other tests. During your visit, the doctors will ask additional questions and often perform an exam.
Sometimes, additional testing, such as an exam under anesthesia, helps your doctors to assess healing and need for surgery. If the team decides that surgery is the best option for your child, we will work with you to schedule the procedure.
