Why Choose the PACE Program

The PACE Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia brings together top pediatric specialists in general surgery and gastroenterology to provide comprehensive care in one location for children with bowel management needs.

Our experience caring for patients with these issues makes us well-equipped to manage your child’s care. We treat more than 300 patients annually in our multidisciplinary clinic.

The PACE Program also works closely with primary care providers to offer appropriate bowel management strategies and ensure coordinated care for your child. We provide comprehensive feedback for each new evaluation and subsequent visits; offer interpretation of diagnostic studies and educational information about complex diagnoses; and recommend referrals to other specialists as needed.
