Pediatric general surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital are leaders in their field and treat a variety of childhood diseases. We understand the high expectations of parents who entrust us with the care of their child during an uneasy time when surgery is needed. We respond with superior care in everything leading up to your child's procedure all the way through their recovery.
Pediatric general surgeons focus on correction of abnormalities in the chest and abdomen. Surgeons also treat trauma emergencies and collaborate with other pediatric medical and surgical specialists. Our surgeons know it takes a special touch for successful surgery on young people because children react differently to surgery than adults. Here, every member of the pediatric general surgery team is specially trained in surgery for children of all ages and focused on providing the best individualized care for our young patients.
