From Prenatal to Complex Surgeries for Children

General Surgery

At the Maimonides Children's Hospital, we offer the full spectrum of pediatric general surgeries. We are dedicated to managing the treatment of your child – even before they are born. Our experts provide services ranging from prenatal to complex surgeries, and follow-up care once your child has returned home. We utilize the latest technology and minimally invasive procedures to reduce risk and keep your child as comfortable as possible.

The Maimonides Children's Hospital provides outstanding pediatric general surgery services. Our board-certified physicians, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and pediatric anesthesiologists are highly skilled and represent the best in medical excellence. Our surgery team collaborates with other divisions to give children the most comprehensive care possible. We are committed to family-centered care. Parents are always encouraged to stay overnight if their child is required to remain in the hospital. In order to reduce your child's anxiety, we evaluate and deliver both inpatient and outpatient care that is child-friendly in an environment created just for them.
