Paris's Story

Paris forfeited her spot on the Columbia University track team and stopped going out in public. Her gastrointestinal illness worsened as she and her family searched for a diagnosis. Then, Paris met Dr. Marc Levitt, chief of our Division of Colorectal & Pelvic Reconstruction. At her first appointment, he offered a life-changing solution.

With the broad range of expertise at Children's National, our patients will get better, integrated care faster, and more effectively, here than anywhere else in the world.

Chief, Division of Colorectal & Pelvic Reconstrution
