Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them. Of course they cannot always answer medical questions and are not always able to be patient and helpful during a medical examination. Pediatric surgeons know how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. In addition, pediatric surgeons use equipment and facilities specifically designed for children.
If your pediatrician suggests that your child see a pediatric surgeon at USA, you can be assured that he or she has the widest range of treatment options, the most extensive and complete training, and the greatest expertise in dealing with children and in treating surgical disorders. USA pediatric surgeons are supported by USA Health's network of more than 20 pediatric specialists.
If your child has been referred to our pediatric surgeons, please fill these forms and bring them to your appointment. Normally, appointments last 30 to 40 minutes. Please be sure to bring your child's "comfort" items and a snack. Our office is located at 1720 Center Street, Mobile AL 36604.
If you have questions during normal business hours, please call (251) 415-1475. USA Pediatric Surgeons also can be reached at any time (24/7/365) by calling the hospital operator at USA Children's & Women's Hospital at (251) 415-1000

For patients who need to be seen the same day we offer a walk in clinic from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. At this clinic, a physician or nurse practitioner is available to evaluate children who have surgical issues and cannot wait to make an appointment to be seen. Please note that x-rays and labwork cannot be obtained in the surgery clinic. All emergently ill children will be referred to USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital, where the surgical team will evaluate them.
