Stony Brook Children's provides a full range of the highest level of surgical care for children. 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.
