World-Class Care with Heart

Pediatric Surgery

Families from all over come to the Children’s Hospital to have surgery because of our expertise and our family-focused care.  Our outstanding surgeons, trained at the nation’s top programs, are nationally recognized leaders, clinical researchers, and educators in pediatric surgery who have a long history of providing advanced and compassionate treatment to their patients.
The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital collaborates with the NYU Langone Medical Center’s Division of Pediatric Surgery to bring together renowned pediatric surgeons who provide world-class care to our patients. All are board-certified in both general and pediatric surgery, and have advanced expertise in pediatric general, thoracic and minimally invasive surgery, as well as prenatal counseling.  We offer advanced surgical interventions for infants, children and adolescents including minimally access surgery of the chest and abdomen, surgical oncology care, vascular malformations, bowel deformities, and pre- and postnatal care of congenital birth defects. 
Surgery on young patients requires a very specific set of skills, perfected by experience and backed up by all the resources of a dedicated children’s hospital. Each year, our exceptional surgical team performs thousands of procedures—from the simplest to the most complex—on babies, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. As a parent, you can rest assured that this experience translates into the best possible outcomes and compassionate care for your child in a safe and nurturing environment.
