Full Spectrum Pediatric Surgical Care
When seeking the best surgeon for your child's care, it's important to look for surgeons who are specially trained in caring for children. This is because surgery for children is very different from surgery for adults. It's not only because children are smaller — but kids react differently to surgery and anesthesia. Treatments should be planned with each child's growth and development in mind.
At Comer Children's Hospital, our pediatric surgeons are specially trained in surgical care for children of all ages — from the tiniest newborns to teens and young adults. We have pediatric surgeons in every surgical subspecialty, from cardiac surgery and general surgery, to neurosurgery and transplant surgery. Often, a child's care may involve a team of pediatric experts from several surgical and medical specialties.
Our surgeons operate in state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the latest technology. Here, our experts are leaders in pediatric minimally invasive surgery — an approach that speeds recovery, reduces pain and minimizes scarring, compared to traditional open surgical techniques.
