Transverse vaginal septum treatment at Boston Children's Hospital

The Center for Congenital Anomalies of the Reproductive Tract offers a surgical procedure to "resect," or remove, the fibrous tissue creating a blockage in your daughter's vagina.

  • There is a risk of stenosis, or scarring where the surgery took place. This is why the gynecologist may have your daughter use a vaginal dilator for a while to aid the healing process and prevent the vagina from taking on an 'hour-glass' shape.
  • Your daughter may find the following guide helpful: Instructions on the Use of Vaginal Dilators.
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.”
