General Surgery Team
The general surgery team is made up of professionals specially trained in the surgical treatment of children and adolescents.
Our attending pediatric surgeons work together along with a rotating Pediatric Surgery resident service. All of our faculty have special interest and training in pediatric general and thoracic surgery, including airway problems, newborn surgery, management of burns and injuries and pediatric tumors. We also use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgical techniques when appropriate.
Our team of nurses, who are specially trained in pediatric surgery, work together to provide support to the physicians as well as the families in our care. Once your child has been established as a patient, they can answer your routine questions related to follow-up care, home care after surgery, prescriptions your child has been given, problems that may arise, and more. They assist the physicians in most procedures and receive ongoing training to continue to provide excellent support.
Our office and clinical staff assist and support the surgeons and nurses. They will be your first link to our team and will provide you with appointment information as well as assist you in scheduling your child's clinic visit and surgery. If needed, they can provide information to the surgeons and nurses, explain your insurance and financial information, and be available to answer your questions over the phone.
