We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating children’s conditions requiring surgery. The following is a list of conditions we treat and procedures we perform.
A disorder of the esophagus, impairing the ability to push food down toward the stomach.
Abnormal position of the anus, rectum, lower spinal cord, and the genitourinary tract.
An infection or inflammation of the appendix, a pinkie-sized organ at the junction of the small and large intestines.
An irregularity that occurs during fetal development that results in malformations in the side of the neck, appearing anywhere from the ear, along the line of the jaw, to the throat.
Including growth disturbances such as macromastia, breast asymmetry, breast enlargement in boys called gynecomastia, breast masses and extra nipples in both boys and girls.
Coming from many sources: scalds from steam, hot bath water, hot beverage spills, hot foods, cooking fluids, are the number one source. Other causes include flames and hot objects.
Rare cysts and tumors forming between the sternum and the spinal column. In infants and young children, often form in the back of the mediastinum and are more often benign.
Congenital malformations of the female genitourinary and anorectal anatomy. The most common is persistent cloaca where openings to the bladder, vagina, and rectum are fused.
A defect that develops during the formation of the diaphragm, which does not completely close, creating a gap between the chest and the abdominal cavities.
A chronic inflammatory bowel disease usually involving the small intestine, most often the lower part called the ileum. Also called ileitis or enteritis.
A rare inherited condition in which a mass of cells forms alongside the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach) during fetal development.
A congenital defect in a baby's abdominal wall that allows the infant's intestines to protrude into the amniotic sac, causing them to cease their normal movement.
