With the largest surgical team in the area, the pediatric surgeons at St. Louis Children’s Hospital are dedicated to providing compassionate care and advanced treatments in a child-friendly environment. All of our physicians are Fellowship trained in pediatric surgery and maintain close contact with families and the referring physician. Results of a recent survey showed 99% patient satisfaction.
In addition to general surgery, our program provides surgical services in the following specialties: cardiothoracic surgery; orthopedic surgery; neurosurgery; plastic surgery; urologic surgery; ophthalmology surgery; otolaryngology surgery; and transplant surgery.
The department works closely with cancer specialists at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center, an internationally recognized cancer care center, in providing surgical treatment of many types of tumors. We also offer advanced care to children who have some of the most serious burn and trauma injuries seen by hospitals in the region.
