Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
The Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Division at Texas Children’s Hospital is one of the few established programs for the surgical treatment of pediatric and adolescent gynecologic disorders in the United States and is the largest such program in Texas.
The division, part of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine, routinely performs common and highly complex surgical procedures for a wide range of gynecological conditions on patients ranging from newborn to 21 years old.
The Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Division participates in three unique multidisciplinary subspecialty clinics located at Texas Children’s Hospital Main campus:
- Gender Medicine Clinic
A collaboration with a team of experts from the divisions of endocrinology, urology, and genetics, focusing on disorders of sexual development.
- Colorectal and Pelvic Health Program
A team approach that includes the pediatric surgery and urology divisions, working together to address congenital birth defects.
- Young Women's Bleeding Disorders Clinic
Working in close concert with Texas Children’s Hematology Center, this is the only program in the nation to offer “one-stop” care for gynecologic, hematologic and psychosocial issues for teenagers with menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) and other bleeding disorders.
