Areas of Focus

  • Minimally Invasive and Robot-Assisted Surgery

    Minimally invasive surgery means less pain during recovery, a shorter hospital stay and a smaller scar. Because some of our pediatric surgeons are national leaders in the use of minimally invasive techniques, we have the most expertise in assessing whether this type of surgery is best for your child.

  • Reconstructive Pelvic Medicine (RPM)

    If your child has a problem affecting the pelvic area, our specialists can help. Our team approach means your child gets care each step of the way from experts in more than seven specialties.

  • Starting Out Strong

    Our pediatric surgeons work closely with the Prenatal Diagnosis and Treatment Program if your baby has been diagnosed with a condition that requires surgery soon after birth.

  • Teamwork Across Specialties

    We have more than just pediatric surgeons on your child’s team. From anesthesiologists to dietitians, all of our clinicians are specially trained to care for kids of all ages and developmental stages.
