A study evaluating the natural history of a patent processus vaginalis (PPV) found during a laparoscopic pyloromyotomy is enrolling patients.

The Thrasher Research Fund has awarded $394,000 to the MWPSC to prospectively study an algorithm for the management of benign ovarian masses in children.

  • Nonoperative treatment of appendicitis
  • Emergency Department aspiration of spontaneous pneumothorax
  • Esophageal atresia and TEF​
  • Retrospective analysis of congenital lung lesions
  • Natural history of patent processus vaginalis in Infants
  • Operative vs. non-operative approach to gastroschisis reduction
  • Reducing the rate of oophorectomy in the setting of benign disease
  • Management of breast masses
  • Multi-Institutional Cohort Study of Pilonidal Disease Management

Current Areas of Study

Studies to evaluate a protocol which optimizes management of adolescents with spontaneous pneumothorax and to correlate radiographic and other data to long term outcome in newborns with anorectal malformations is almost complete.

We are a group of Pediatric Surgery investigators from academic health centers in the Midwest who are passionate about studying surgical diseases and their management in children. Learn More

Meet the Investigators

A study on the management of breast masses in pediatric patients is beginning.

Close to 500 patients are in a database of congenital lung lesions.
