At Ascension, our pediatric professionals do more than help repair physical problems; we care for the full well-being of children and their families.
About Pediatric Surgery
If your child requires surgery, Ascension's highly trained pediatric doctors and nurses can provide gentle, holistic care for them, as well as support for the rest of your family.
Our pediatric surgical units regularly perform procedures such as tonsillectomies, appendectomies, hernia repair and minor orthopedic surgeries, and have extensive experience with many other conditions and procedures.
Before undertaking any procedure, we take the time to explain your child's surgery in a way they can understand, describe what they should expect during their recovery, and answer any questions. We also work with parents and siblings to ensure a good understanding of any pre- and post-surgery treatments and future rehabilitation needs.
Our pediatric environments are designed for the comfort of children and their families, while also providing our surgeons the latest technology. And our follow-up care helps ensure a smoother, more complete recovery once your child returns home.
