Dai Chung M.D.

Dedicated Surgery Care for Children
When it's your child, we know that no surgery is minor. Our pediatric surgical teams and surgery center are built around one goal: providing child and families with the best opportunity for healing and wellness.

We treat a wide variety of congenital include common conditions such as appendicitis or hernias, or more rare and complex conditions such as tumors and multiple birth defects.

Our team provides coverage 24 hours a day and are available for surgical consultation and care. We work closely with pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric specialists and a network of pediatric home care providers.

New Technique Eases Gallbladder Surgery for Children
Children’s Hospital is the first in Tennessee to perform a single-site incision robotic cholecystectomy, or gallbladder removal surgery, on a pediatric patient, reducing the number of incision sites for the procedure from four to one.
