Texas Children's Hospital is the only hospital in the south central and south western part of the country with a program specifically dedicated to the medical care and reconstructive surgery of children with complex urogenital malformations. These conditions are rare and therefore require not only a multidisciplinary team approach but also individual physicians with experience and expertise in the treatment of these children.

Under the direction of Dr. Duong Tu, our complex urogenital reconstruction program aims to provide the most state-of-the-art, expedient and compassionate care to these patients and their families.

Conditions we treat:

  • Bladder exstrophy
  • Cloacal exstrophy
  • Persistent cloaca
  • Persistent urogenital sinus
  • Neurogenic bladder

Among the techniques we employ:

  • Robotic-assisted reconstruction
  • Mitrofanoff channel/appendicovesicostomy
  • MACE continence enema
  • Bladder outlet procedures for urinary incontinence

Patients with most of these conditions have medical needs spanning multiple fileds and requiring various different physicians. We therefore offer a cooperative group of expert physicians.

Patients with anorectal malformations (cloaca, cloacal exstrophy and imperforate anus) are also treated in our multidisciplinary Anorectal Malformations Clinic.
