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.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
