Your partners along the way

We provide care for kids with a range of different diseases. We know that surgery can be a scary thing for a kid (and a parent), that’s why our surgeons and child life specialists work hard to help your child feel at home before, during and after surgery. We help children understand why they are having surgery and try to ease their fears.

You can feel confident knowing that our specialized surgeons will take every step to get your child the best possible outcome. We work with your family physician to make an individualized care plan that will meet your child’s unique needs.
