Pediatric Surgery

At Swedish our top priority is to provide comprehensive, personalized care for children and their families. As board-certified pediatric surgeons, we perform routine surgeries as well as more complex procedures for children and adolescents. We also specialize in neonatal surgeries, collaborating with Swedish obstetricians and neonatologists from the moment the need for surgical care is discovered.

Neonatal, Childhood and Adolescent Conditions Treated

What makes Swedish Pediatric Surgery special is not only the breadth and depth of our experience, but the collaborative approach we take – reviewing and discussing surgical options as a team – to ensure the best outcome for each child. We work with a team of anesthesiologists, hospitalists, nurses, pharmacists, child-life specialists and therapists and are committed to direct dialogue with your referring physician, as well as you and your child.
