Pediatric Surgery: Big Decisions. Little Incisions.
When your child requires surgery, you want to be certain that you are receiving the most advanced care possible from the most experienced medical team.
At Studer Family Children's Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, we understand that children are not just small adults, and their needs are very different from adult patients. We are proud to specialize in surgical services for children all ages, as well as prenatal consultations for babies still in their mother’s womb.
Why Choose a Pediatric Surgeon?
A pediatric surgeon is a general surgeon who has spent additional time training to care for infants and children. In addition to five years of general surgical training and one to two years of research, a pediatric surgeon receives an additional two years of full-time clinical training in the surgical evaluation and management of infants and children. When you choose a pediatric specialist, you can trust that he or she understands the very specific needs of a child before, during and after treatment.
