At the Forefront of Minimally Invasive Surgery

Nationally known for our pediatric surgery program, Florida Hospital for Children is one of the world leaders in minimally invasive surgery for children and adolescents. Thanks to these advances in surgery, your child can recover more quickly and experience fewer complications than with traditional surgery as many procedures require just a few stitches to close.

At Florida Hospital for Children, we understand that dealing with the need for surgery can be overwhelming, both physically and mentally. This is not only true for your child, but for the entire family as well. That’s why we are committed to providing comprehensive child-friendly care with heartfelt compassion. This commitment is evident in our unique healing environment and the integrated, interdisciplinary teams who perform specialized and often highly complex surgical procedures.

Everyone on our highly trained surgical team—from the board-certified surgeons and pediatric specialists to the pediatric nurses—is focused on one goal: healing your child through the power of medicine and the gift of compassion. No matter what type of surgery your child needs, you can trust our professional team to administer world-class care with minimal stress and anxiety.

Our surgical expertise includes:

  • Atresia (gastrointestinal)
  • Carinatum (pigeon chest)
  • Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM)/sequestrian
  • Congenital diaphragmatic hernia
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Hirschsprung’s disease
  • Pectus excavatum (funnel chest)
  • Polyhydramnios
  • Undescended testicles

Whether it’s a relatively simple surgery to relieve pain or a major operation to save a life, Florida Hospital for Children uses the most advanced surgical techniques and technologies available to help put your child on the path to wellness. We believe you’ll not only be impressed, but delighted, by our legacy of quality surgical care for the young patients who rely on us to heel them.
