Philosophy of Care

I came to Boston Children’s Hospital to be a part of the colorectal center and pelvic reconstruction program.  It was an opportunity to work in a collaborative multidisciplinary center with skilled experts who share my interest in forwarding the care of colorectal care in kids and providing premier care to these patients together as a team.  Boston Children’s to me was the right combination of clinical care, innovation and research opportunities.


Belinda Hsi Dickie, MD, PhD obtained her medical degree at the University of Toronto, and completed general surgery residency and an advanced minimally invasive surgery fellowship at the University of Alberta. She continued her training, completing fellowships in pediatric vascular malformations and pediatric colorectal surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and in pediatric surgery at the University of Florida. She returned to Cincinnati Children’s in 2011.


Dr. Dickie has a special interest in the medical and surgical treatment of vascular malformations, and minimally invasive surgery. She had a lab in vascular biology which looked at the genetics and molecular pathways involved with lymphangiogenesis, and the genetics involved in the development of vascular malformations. The lab was looking at novel mutations in vascular malformations and the potential effects on lymphatic growth and different treatment alternatives.
