Decades of experience in the care of patients with bladder exstrophy
The Boston Children’s Hospital Bladder Exstrophy Program specializes in the care of children with bladder exstrophy, a rare and complex birth defect in which the bladder is turned “inside out.” As an established and dedicated program within the Department of Urology, our team has decades of experience performing surgeries and managing the care of patients with bladder exstrophy. In addition to our Urology team, care of children with bladder exstrophy is supported by experts in Anesthesiology, Radiology, Maternal Fetal Care, and Orthopedics.
