About me

Erin Teeple, M.D., is the only surgeon in the United States board-certified in both adult colorectal surgery and pediatric general surgery. She completed her adult colorectal surgery training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a Harvard-affiliated hospital in Boston, and her pediatric surgery training at Nemours Children’s Health, a Jefferson-affiliated hospital in Wilmington, DE.

As an active committee member in the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS), Dr. Teeple regularly makes contributions to improving transitional care.

Dr. Teeple has a particular expertise in children and adults with motility and pelvic floor disorders, as well as inflammatory bowel disease. To bring her skills to Children’s National, she was recruited by Marc Levitt, M.D., in 2022 to direct the Children’s National Colorectal Transition Program in collaboration with MedStar Washington Hospital and Georgetown University Hospital.
