Pediatric Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive neonatal and pediatric surgeons use advanced surgical equipment and tiny video cameras to perform major procedures on the youngest patients. The result is less trauma to the body, which translates to less pain and pain medication for our most fragile of patients. Complications are dramatically reduced, less anesthesia is required and overall healing time is decreased. In fact, many patients are discharged within a day or two after a complex procedure.
