Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery

In the Section of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery we specialize in the general surgical care of children – from premature infants with congenital and acquired illnesses to school age children and teenagers. We care for a wide variety of surgical diseases including (but not limited to) congenital abnormalities, hernias of the groin and the belly button, appendicitis, gallbladder issues, lung problems, feeding tubes placement, removal of cysts and other masses, and surgical treatment of cancers.

We also offer prenatal consultations to mothers with fetuses with congenital defects.

Within our section, we are committed to education, outreach and compassionate quality care for all our patients. We believe strongly in family-centered care and a team approach that includes the patient, parents, primary pediatrician and other appropriate pediatric sub-specialists.
