Pediatric Surgery

header image

Our specialty-trained pediatric surgeons provide general and specialized surgical services to babies in utero, infants, children, and adolescents who have a wide range of congenital and acquired conditions.

From prenatal and fetal care, to complicated pediatric tumors and life-saving critical care support, our surgeons are board certified in pediatric surgery and meet the rigorous standards to the highest degree of the American Board of Surgery.

Our skilled team performs both conventional and minimally invasive procedures using the latest technology. With a minimally invasive approach, our patients experience smaller scars, reduced pain, and faster recovery times. Best of all, hospital stays are generally shorter and children return to family, friends and activities sooner.

We coordinate the Pediatric Trauma Service, which sees hundreds of admissions every year. And to help keep kids safe and out of the emergency room, we take part in Stony Brook's special efforts to educate the community on injury prevention.

At Stony Brook Children’s, our goal is to make your child feel comfortable and cared for during hospitalization. Our Child Life Program is focused on helping minimize the stress that pediatric patients and their families may experience when faced with illness, medical procedures and unfamiliar surroundings. Pre-Surgical Tours are available to give patients who are scheduled for surgery a chance to see and know what to expect.

Our Team

When your child needs surgical consultation and/or treatment, you will want fast access to a surgeon who is qualified and experienced in operating on children. Because our team comprises five specialty-trained pediatric surgeons, all easily available for consultation, your child can quickly receive the attention he or she needs.

Our pediatric surgeons are board certified in pediatric surgery and meet all the rigorous standards of training required of pediatric surgeons by the American Board of Surgery. There are also dedicated and certified pediatric nurse practitioners on the team.

Our pediatric surgeons work closely with board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists along with other team members who are experienced in caring for children and understand not only their physical needs but also their psychosocial development. We also work closely with Stony Brook’s specialists in trauma, critical care, oncology and perinatology so that there is a continuum of care for every child we see. In addition, Stony Brook Children’s is the only hospital in Suffolk County that performs minimally invasive surgery on pediatric patients.

Our approach holds true whether the patient requires a minor procedure or a major operation. For children who need a major procedure, Stony Brook Children's, Suffolk County's only tertiary care hospital, offers expert support services, including a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), pediatric cardiology, pediatric anesthesiology and many other pediatric subspecialties, which allows children, from infancy to young adulthood, to receive uninterrupted, complex care in their own community.
