The Quest for Advancement

We offer a robust surgical team with comprehensive sub-specialization. We are early adopters, and often times the pioneers, of advanced treatments where we utilize leading-edge equipment, techniques and care. This dedication to excellence in patient care has led us into new specialty areas, such as the Nicholson Center for Surgical Advancement, a groundbreaking program dedicated to creating a nationally and internationally recognized center for pediatric surgical advancement. Our pediatric surgeons are regularly doing research to develop new and improved approaches and techniques for pediatric surgery. Moreover, we were the first in the region to introduce a dedicated Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Clinic.
