About the Adolescent Breast and Chest Program
The Adolescent Breast and Chest Program at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado treats children and adolescents with breast and chest differences or conditions. Young males and females are both seen for a variety of issues including pain and discomfort, limitations in their inability to participate in daily activities, or differences in appearance. Whether your child was born with a condition that causes a breast or chest difference, or requires chest contouring surgery for a new condition our multidisciplinary team works together to create a personalized care plan.
Why choose Children’s Colorado for reconstructive chest surgery?
The Adolescent Breast and Chest Program includes specialists from plastic and reconstructive surgery, pediatric surgery, psychology, gynecology, nutrition, physical therapy, endocrinology, and social work.
Having chest or breast differences can be difficult for a young person. Collaborating with specialists from departments like psychology and social work can help children cope with the mental stresses of having such differences and challenges they may face like bullying. When we treat children and adolescents at Children’s Colorado, we take a holistic approach, treating the entire body, which includes the mind.
In addition to our unique approach, all team members of the program are board-certified, with a focus on working with children. This multidisciplinary team sees patients monthly and coordinates the care needed for each patient. Patients seen in this clinic will:
- Discuss concerns related to body image and find support from our team.
- Discuss expectations and treatment options.
