Our research focus is aimed at improving the reproductive health of girls and women throughout their life span.
Our researchers are studying areas as diverse as congenital anomalies of the reproductive tract, disorders of sexual differentiation, paratubal cysts, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), labial adhesions and lichen sclerosis. We also have special interest in bleeding disorders, adolescent hormonal disorders, genital warts in children and minimally invasive pediatric surgeries.
We are currently studying how to best promote healthy lifestyle choices and reproductive health knowledge among adolescent girls, and have a specialty in caring for the gynecologic needs of developmentally delayed girls and women. Lastly, we are expanding into tissue banking for pediatric gynecologic cancers and rare conditions.
Our researchers have presented abstracts at the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG)and have published more than two dozen peer-reviewed articles. Through collaboration with other Pediatric Gynecology Fellowship programs we are able to engage in multi-institutional research. We have 2 fellows, 3-4 residents and 4-6 students per year who are involved in research projects. For information on such educational opportunities, please call 832-826-7464.
