Imperforate hymen treatment at Boston Children's Hospital

The Center for Congenital Anomalies of the Reproductive Tract offers the minor surgical procedure needed to remove the extra tissue covering your daughter's hymen.

  • An imperforate hymen can be surgically removed in infancy.
  • If discovered later in life, the imperforate hymen can be removed at the time of diagnosis. The procedure removes the excess tissue and places sutures to avoid scarring and reblockage of the area.
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.”
