Our General Surgery Team

In this age of high technology and rapidly advancing medical science, no procedure is a one-surgeon show. Rather, surgeons approach surgery as a collaboration, working closely with experts in comfort and pain control (anesthesiologists), laboratory physicians (pathologists), critical care specialists and imaging experts (radiologists).

In addition, comprehensive care of children like yours often requires consultation and cooperation with other specialists, such as oncologists (cancer), obstetrician/gynecologists (pregnancy and birth), urologists (urinary system), neonatologists (newborn care) and genetic counselors.
