Why Nationwide Children's?
The Center for Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction (CCPR) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is the country’s leading Center for children diagnosed with Hirschsprung disease and other complex colorectal conditions. At the CCPR, our experts come together from all specialities that could be needed by our patients including colorectal surgery, gastroenterology, urology and gynecology.
Studies show that there is a direct correlation between the number of patients a clinical program sees and high-quality outcomes they deliver to their patients. Since our inception in 2014, we have treated more than 3,000 patients from all 50 states and 73 countries. We see patients with all levels of complexities, but are especially focused on helping patients that have not been able to find help elsewhere, whether for second opinions or corrections from previous surgeries. Hundreds of patient families also attend our Bowel Management Bootcamp each year.
Every child we see is given an individualized treatment plan that can span throughout their life - from newborn, through potty training, puberty, sexual function and childbearing.
