Pediatric Surgery

Flushing Hospital Medical Center offers the latest in pediatric surgerical procedures to the children in our community.

The modern operating suites at Flushing Hospital allow the team to perform all of the latest procedures on their patients. These board certified pediatric surgeons perform procedures on fetuses, infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The team specializes in minimally invasive procedures and performs a wide variety of procedures either laparoscopically or thoracoscopically. These techniques utilize smaller incisions, which means less scarring and less time spent in the hospital. As a result, patients benefit from shorter recovery times, fewer post-op complications, and less pain.
 

The surgical team collaborates with the patient’s referring physician and keeps them informed at all times of the surgical course of action. In most instances, the child’s parents are allowed to be with the patient throughout the pre-op and recovery periods. The pediatric surgical team treats patients in the hospital’s Ambulatory Care Center and is also available for inpatient consultations.
