  • Hirschsprung’s disease
  • Imperforated anus

Bowel Management

Our dedicated bowel management team can help manage your child’s fecal incontinence and soiling, so you and your child can achieve greater independence, and emotional and mental well-being. During your first visit, the team will customize a plan to meet your child’s individual needs. Our team will teach you how to manage your child’s condition with timed bowel movements, enemas, dietary changes and/or medications, such as laxatives.
