The Pediatric Surgical Section is based in The Children's Hospital Women's and Newborn Pavilion and provides surgical care for children and adolescents. All aspects of pediatric surgery are treated, including pediatric surgical oncology, minimally invasive surgery and endoscopy, trauma and critical care, neonatal surgery including genitourinary abnormalities, thoracic and abdominal surgery.
Pediatric surgeons are specialists in children's health, specially trained in today's modern diagnostics, treatments, procedures and equipment. Each pediatric surgeon is board certified in general surgery and pediatric surgery.
All pediatric surgeons participate in research, teaching and clinical care and are published authors in the field of pediatric surgery.
