Conference Welcome

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great honor for Nationwide Children’s Hospital to host the 6th Annual Pediatric Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction Conference in conjunction with the 6th Annual Colorectal Nursing Conference in Columbus OH, USA.

As in years past, this event will gather numerous experts from all over Europe, North America and throughout the world in a friendly atmosphere that allows fruitful and exciting discussions and exchanges on new approaches to the complete care of the colon, rectum and pelvis in children.

As a unique occasion to share knowledge, experiences, projects and ideas, our meeting will provide plenary sessions, interactive workshops and live surgery broadcasts, for attendees at both basic and experienced levels. Satellite meetings for patients’ associations and the Pediatric Colorectal & Pelvic Learning Consortium are also planned. In addition to interactive panel discussion with leaders in the field, there will be scientific presentations selected from submitted abstracts, both in oral as well as in poster format. Investigators are encouraged to submit innovative abstracts for presentation.

We look forward to welcoming you to Columbus, Ohio, USA in November 2019!

THE 4th ANNUAL DANIEL H. TEITELBAUM, MD MEMORIAL LECTURE

Daniel Teitelbaum, MD, our dear friend and colleague passed away on August 17, 2016, after a long struggle with a brain tumor. Dan completed his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University, and his medical degree at The Ohio State College of Medicine. He trained in general surgery and pediatric surgery at OSU and Columbus Children’s Hospital. He then joined the faculty at the University of Michigan in 1992 and remained there throughout his career. He performed a wide range of general pediatric surgery with a particular interest in disorders of sexual development, short bowel syndrome, and pediatric colorectal problems. As a researcher, his primary focus was parenteral nutrition and short bowel syndrome. Dr. Teitelbaum had over 250 peer-reviewed publications and was continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for 17 years. He served as the President of the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN), teaching and promoting optimal nutrition for individuals around the world.

 
Dan also served as the pediatric surgery training program director, and had immeasurable contributions to the careers of dozens of pediatric surgeons, general surgery residents, and other trainees. For his many years of passionate work in the area of teaching and mentorship he received the coveted American Academy of Pediatrics, Section on Surgery, Salzberg Award.
 
Dr. Teitelbaum was a proud husband and father. He was married for 29 years to his wife, Mindy Teitelbaum, with whom he had three daughters: Hannah, Abigail, and Rachel. Dr. Teitelbaum was well known as a wonderful clinician, a devoted teacher, a brilliant researcher, and a kind human being. He was a man of great wisdom and intuition who cared for the most complicated of patients with devotion and unique medical and surgical skill. Everything that he did professionally was for the patient, for the trainee, for the field of pediatric surgery, or for society. He was an extraordinary physician/scientist whose contributions as a surgeon affected the lives of thousands of patients and their families and whose legacy will forever impact the care of children.
 
As a faculty member of the NCH Colorectal Course, a founding member of the International Pediatric Colorectal Consortium and as an OSU student, resident and fellow, we thought it fitting given his passion for colorectal care, to honor his memory here at NCH by establishing a yearly lectureship, attached to the Colorectal Course.
A scholarship in memory of Dr. Teitelbaum will be used to help trainees and faculty from the developing world participate in this course each year.
