The Pediatric General Surgery team at Holtz Children’s Hospital provides skilled and comprehensive surgical care for children from birth to young adulthood. This division specializes in minimally invasive surgery of newborns, toddlers, and adolescents requiring thoracic, gastrointestinal, colorectal, and oncologic surgical care. The team of seven board-certified University of Miami Miller School of Medicine pediatric surgeons performs a full range of emergency and elective pediatric surgical procedures at Holtz Children’s Hospital, including neonatal procedures in the 126-bed, level 4 NICU and Ryder Trauma Center.
Many times, low risk surgical cases can be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient and family to return home the same day.
When circumstances call for pediatric surgery, we understand that choosing a surgeon is one of the most important decisions for parents. At Holtz Children’s Hospital, you’ll find that optimum care, knowledge, experience and access to highly skilled pediatric surgeons is a top priority.
To schedule a consult with one of our pediatric surgeons, please call 305-585-PEDI.
