Pediatric Surgery

Our pediatric surgeons have advanced training in general and thoracic surgery to treat a wide range of conditions on children from newborns to teens. Our operative expertise includes abdominal surgery, head and neck surgery, thoracic (chest) surgery, hernia repair, neonatal/congenital malformations, pediatric gynecology and trauma care. We do many of our operations using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopy and thoracoscopy). Some of the conditions we care for and operations we perform include:

  • Acute appendicitis
  • Pyloric stenosis
  • Inguinal hernias, hydroceles
  • Umbilical hernias
  • Undescended testis
  • Circumcision
  • Drainage of chest infection after pneumonia
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Colon pull-through procedures
  • Removal of spleen and gall bladder
  • Esophageal disorders
  • Necrotizing enterocolitis
  • Pilonidal cysts
  • Intestinal atresias
  • Abdominal wall defects (gastroschisis, omphalocele)
