How Boston Children's Hospital approaches gastrointestinal polyposis

The Center for Pediatric Polyposis at Children's was created to provide the highest quality comprehensive care to children with gastrointestinal polyps. Our program is unique among polyposis centers in the United States for its pediatric-oriented focus and location within a free standing children's hospital.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
