A Unique Collaboration

Since 2009, a team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, social workers, and other healthcare providers from hospitals in India and the U.S. have worked together to help children in Asia and Africa receive the complex surgery necessary to address bladder exstrophy.

A unique surgical collaboration between Civil Hospital AhmedabadChildren’s Hospital of PhiladelphiaCincinnati Children’s, and Seattle Children’s, combined with rigorous patient follow-up, has been associated with improved patient outcomes. A-BE-C plays an important role to provide critical social, emotional and educational support to treated children and their families.

With your support, we are making an impact and seeing amazing outcomes.

More Stories From Our Work in India

Since 2014, A-BE-C has participated in the Annual Operative Workshop on Exstrophy and Episadias Complex at Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad, India.

A-BE-C has created a unique model where we not only sponsor children needing medical care, but we also arrange for the child’s physician to attend the workshop to receive education and training to continue postoperative care in their home country.
