For two little girls with a rare condition, Children’s Wisconsin offered renewed hope
As a parent, one of the joys throughout pregnancy is experiencing the many ultrasounds with your baby. Hearing a heartbeat, seeing fingers and toes, and watching the body grow is a magical moment for any parent-to-be. But when a birth defect is detected, especially a rare one, a parent’s feelings quickly shift from excitement to fear. This was the case for two families, the Lochers and the Haaks.
MIBEC (Multi Institutional Bladder Exstrophy Consortium)
The MIBEC consortium brings together the country’s top pediatric urologists from Children’s Wisconsin, Children’s Wisconsin of Philadelphia, and Boston Children’s. The goal of this multi-center team is to improve surgical techniques to restore the cosmetic appearance and function of the urinary and reproductive tract, teach new physicians and colleagues world-wide, and report on improved patient outcomes and quality of life.
