Pediatric surgeons at Comer Children’s treat all young people — big and small.
Performed on newborns, many of whom are ill or premature infants. Some procedures are performed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and are done to correct congenital malformations or to treat conditions related to abnormal gestational growth or low birth weight. On a routine basis, our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive surgery to successfully treat congenital anomalies in even the tiniest babies.
Surgery for Children & Teenagers
Performed on patients in the toddler stage up to adulthood. Surgeons performing procedures on these age groups understand children’s sensitivity to their body image, scarring and how surgery will impact their developing bodies. For patients in this age range, good preparation and explanation about the surgery can help make all the difference in your child’s experience at the hospital.
