PhD defence ceremony

Anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung disease are two relatively common congenital disorders seen in the pediatric surgical practice. Different aspects of the treatment of patients with an anorectal malformation or Hirschprung disease can still be challenging. Marieke Witvliet’s aim is to identify the functional and psychosocial problems patients with an anorectal malformation or Hirschsprung disease can encounter during life, and to investigate the psychosocial impact these diagnoses can have on parents.
