About Pediatric Surgery

Special training in pediatric surgery is important, as surgical problems seen by pediatric surgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general surgeons. Pediatric surgeons treat children from the newborn stage through late adolescence.

Pediatric surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage children's surgical needs including:

  • Surgical repair of birth defects
  • Serious injuries that require surgery, including burns
  • Diagnosis and surgical care of tumors, both benign and cancerous
  • Endoscopic procedures (bronchoscopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, colonoscopy)
  • General surgeries, such as hernia repair, appendectomies and gastric reflux treatment
  • Thoracic surgeries, such as lung resections, repair of chest wall deformities, and removal of tumors, both benign and cancerous
  • Minimally invasive surgeries in the chest and abdomen for all pediatric age groups (newborns to adolescents)
