The International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care at Children’s Hospital Colorado evaluates and treats patients with anorectal malformations (imperforate anus), cloaca, cloacal exstrophy, Hirschsprung disease, idiopathic constipation and other conditions that affect bowel control. Families may contact Alberto Peña, MD, and Andrea Bischoff, MD, for services that range from prenatal consultations to delivery of patients with anorectal malformations. We also provide bowel management consultation and perform pediatric and adult colorectal surgery.
Our colorectal team is led by Dr. Peña, an internationally renowned pediatric colorectal surgeon, who transformed colorectal treatment by introducing the posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP), also known as the pull-through procedure. This method is widely used by top surgeons all over the world and has since been adapted to treat multiple conditions.
Children with colorectal and urogenital conditions may continue to be challenged with bowel, gynecological and urological problems throughout their life. We partner with the University of Colorado Hospital so that as children age out of pediatric care, our colorectal team helps pediatric patients transition into adult care without missing a beat – right on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
In addition, we understand our female patients may need help as they think about starting families of their own. Children’s Colorado is also home to the Colorado Fetal Care Center, which allows our colorectal surgeons to be involved in everything from fertility to delivery.Learn about our colorectal and urogenital research
