Recent innovations have made pediatric surgery less invasive and less painful. Our surgeons are highly experienced with the latest surgical discoveries. They know that great patient care extends beyond the operating room.
Our surgery specialties include a wide range of general and specialized surgical services for children from before birth through the teen years. These include common conditions such as appendicitis and hernias or more rare and complex conditions such as tumors and congenital diseases.
Our surgery teams provide 24-hour coverage and prompt response for surgical consultation and care. Our surgeons work closely with pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric subspecialists, and a network of pediatric home care providers. Our state-of-the-art facility has16 operating rooms and postoperative areas for care of surgical patients. Last year, we operated on close to 16,000 children.
