All Children’s Hospital’s success in treating babies with surgical problems is based upon the multidisciplinary team approach that can only be found at a specialized children’s hospital.

A Team of Specialists

The pediatric surgery division relies upon a host of subspecialists to help in this endeavor including the perinatologists, obstetricians, neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists, pediatric heart surgeons, geneticists, pediatric neurosurgeons, pediatric anesthesiologists, and the list goes on.  It is through this focus on team management that even the tiniest babies (some weighing little more than a pound) can survive.

Surgical Care that Begins Before Birth

The care of  these babies begins prenatally when pediatric surgeons meet with expecting families to counsel them regarding anomalies that may have been discovered during prenatal screening.  In some instances there are steps that can be taken to treat these babies while they are still in the womb.  In other situations, the prenatal visits are used to plan and prepare for the operation that will be needed after birth.

The Best Facilities and Resources

Our state of the art operating rooms and neonatal intensive care unit (completed in 2010) provided the latest advances in caring for children.

All Children’s Hospital also has the region’s busiest ECMO program, a technology that help babies with heart and lung problems survive the initial few days of life until they can be stabilized.

In addition, for babies that are not born on the All Children’s campus, we have a specialized transport team that can go out to other hospitals to bring the little patients in for the specialized care they need.

Specialized Knowledge and Experience

Our surgical division has a clinical focus on neonatal surgery.  All of surgeons have specialized training for operating on newborns and years of experience in addressing the numerous congenital or acquired problems in infants that require an operation.  Some of these conditions include:
