Pelvic Reconstruction Fellowship

The Pediatric Pelvic Reconstruction Fellowship is a one-year program intended for candidates who have received prior training in pediatric surgery but seek additional training in complex colorectal procedures, as well as pediatric urology and pediatric gynecology.

The Division of Pediatric Colorectal & Pelvic Reconstruction at Children’s National Hospital formally integrates all specialties involved in providing complete care of the colon, rectum and pelvis in kids. This environment provides a unique experience for Pelvic Reconstruction fellows, providing access to a large number of pediatric reconstruction cases: particularly reoperations and collaborative operations involving colorectal, urology and gynecology.

The large patient volumes and number of colorectal, urologic, gynecologic and reconstructive cases at Children's National Hospital make it an ideal location to receive advanced pelvic reconstruction training. In addition, we have tremendous basic science, clinical, translational and outcomes research opportunities with unique clinical services.
