Children's Hospital Colorado

Our Approach to Care at the International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care

Where comprehensive care, personalized attention and world-class experience meet to treat patients with complex colorectal disorders.



The International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care’s mission is to provide comprehensive care and personal attention to patients with complex colorectal and urogenital disorders. Here is what you and your child can expect when you visit.

Personalized care

If your child has been diagnosed with a colorectal or urogenital condition either before or after birth, the first step is to contact the Center. Our dedicated team of surgeons provides personalized care quickly to help you understand your child’s disorder.

Thorough evaluations

During your visit, a pediatric colorectal surgeon will complete an evaluation and discuss your child’s full medical history. Specialists address any additional heart, spine and genitourinary health challenges your child may be having.

If your child needs additional X-rays, MRI, ultrasounds or a contrast enema, we perform all testing at Children's Colorado to make the experience more convenient for your family.

A treatment plan tailored to your child

The goal of the first visit is to address any congenital conditions present at birth or identify the cause of your child’s symptoms. At the end of the appointment, our care team will provide a treatment plan tailored specifically to your child’s needs.

Dedicated pediatric colorectal surgeons and leaders in colorectal treatment

Our dedicated team of doctors, nurses and physician assistants make up the most experienced colorectal program in the world. We treat kids from our local communities in Colorado, the entire Rocky Mountain region and overseas. This Center supports, counsels and provides surgical and management options for patients dealing with bowel and urinary incontinence.

Multidisciplinary team approach

We are dedicated to helping your child achieve the best genitourinary and bowel function and to improving your child's physical and social quality of life. Specialists that your child may see include:
