Experts in Pediatric Gynecology

Our Pediatric Gynecology Program cares exclusively for children and teens, which allows us to meet your child's psychological and emotional needs while delivering excellent care.

Meet the team

Children's National Hospital is one of the nation's few hospitals with a dedicated program for infants, children and teens with common and complex pediatric gynecologic concerns. Our exceptional expertise in both gynecology and surgery also allows our team to provide medical and surgical treatment for a range of conditions, which can be unique to childhood or persist into adulthood.

Services for Patients and Families 

The program coordinates care for patients with a range of surgical and non-surgical concerns. The following services are available for patients between the ages of 0-21: 

  • Routine gynecologic care for the treatment of menstrual concerns, pelvic pain, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, early or delayed puberty, contraception and screening for sexually transmitted infections
  • Routine and emergent surgical management of ovarian masses, ovarian torsion, vulvar trauma, hymenal abnormalities and congenital anomalies of the reproductive tract 
  • Fertility preservation counseling and hormone replacement therapy for patients at risk for or experiencing ovarian failure
  • Gender-affirming medical care and gender-affirming hysterectomy 
  • Multidisciplinary care of patients with differences of sex developmentTurner syndrome, endocrinopathies, anemia caused by menstrual bleeding, vulvar lesions and anorectal malformations

Continuity of Care

Our program is also unique in our ability to monitor young women during their transition to adult care. This continuity of care is possible through a partnership with MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Some of our team members care for patients at both hospitals into adulthood. This means that as an adult, your daughter has the option to see a physician who knows her medical history.
