Janet Kimble, RN, CPN
Janet Kimble is a Registered and Certified Pediatric Nurse with 40 years of pediatric nursing experience, including 30 years at Cedars-Sinai. Ms. Kimble's interest in pediatric bowel management, fueled by her concern for patients she encountered as the nurse coordinator for CSMC pediatric surgery, led her to seek additional training at the Colorectal Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Ms. Kimble's expertise has been instrumental in changing the lives of children with bowel management issues. As an invited international lecturer, Ms. Kimble has contributed to radical change in physician attitudes toward the management of children with anorectal malformations. Additionally, Ms. Kimble, with assistance from Chloe (her special g-tube educator doll), has borne primary responsibility for pediatric gastrostomy teaching at CSMC for over seven years.
