About Pediatric Surgery

Because of their unique developmental processes, children require equally unique medical care. Their bodies grow and change dramatically during infancy and early childhood, a pattern that continues through adolescence and the teen years.

From surgical procedures to correct internal medical conditions, treat childhood solid tumors or deal with orthopedic concerns, the specially trained staff at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida provides a supportive, age-appropriate approach to pediatric surgery in order to reduce the stress of a child and family who face the often frightening prospect of surgery.
