Why choose Children’s Hospital Colorado?

At the International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care, we are the world-renowned experts in the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal and urogenital problems through each stage of a child’s life. During your visit, patients and families benefit from a multidisciplinary team that includes all the pediatric specialties to treat your child's complex health concern.

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.

A lifetime of treatment all on one campus

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.
