Transition Urogynecology Clinic for Women with Congenital Anomalies
Our close relationship with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital positioned the Urogynecologists of the Northwestern Medicine Women’s Integrated Pelvic Health Program to work jointly with expert pediatric surgeons to develop a nationally recognized program to care for young women with complex congenital anomalies.
Increasing numbers of women who have undergone complex surgery for cloacal and bladder exstrophy are transitioning to adulthood with unique urologic, obstetric, and gynecologic needs. The Urogynecology physicians, under the leadership of Dr. Margaret Mueller, work cooperatively with pediatric surgeons from Lurie to provide comprehensive care plans for these women.
By evaluating these young women together, trainees in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology) and Pediatric Surgery will go on to establish similarly, much-needed programs. The Urogynecology and Pediatric Surgical faculty also work collaboratively to optimize the evaluation and reconstructive surgical care for women with congenital anomalies of the genitourinary tract.
