Comprehensive Surgical Services for Children

Pediatric general surgery is a well-established specialty at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital & Health Network. We use a cooperative approach to pediatric care, coordinating our services with other sub-specialties.

Comprehensive Surgical Services

Mary Bridge Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgical Services offers a full range of operative and non-operative pediatric care, with coordinated services for even the youngest and most complex pediatric patients.

Our pediatric surgeons are experienced in performing a range of procedures, from a routine hernia repair to emergency surgery on a newborn baby to fix a life-threatening birth defect.

Some of the most common surgeries we perform include:

  • Appendectomies
  • Emergency and trauma surgeries, including liver and spleen injuries
  • Feeding access procedures
  • Inguinal and umbilical hernia repair
  • Hydrocele repair
  • Pediatric urology procedures
  • Repairing congenital defects in newborns, including Hirschsprung’s disease, lung abnormalities and uro-genital issues
  • Tumor removal and other surgeries related to cancer treatment
  • Wound/ostomy procedures

We have the only surgeons in the region who offer cleft lift repair on pediatric patients with pilonidal cysts, an abnormal pocket in the skin near the tailbone that usually contains hair and skin debris and can be extremely painful.

We also work with MultiCare Maternal Fetal Medicine to offer prenatal consultations for congenital conditions that may require surgery immediately after birth.
