Pediatric Surgery Resources for Healthcare Professionals

We are always looking for new and innovative ways to diagnose and treat pediatric conditions, so that we can provide the best care and outcomes for kids. In the medical field, collaboration in research and developing new treatment methods are essential to advancing our collective medical knowledge across the nation and around the world.

When we share a medical breakthrough, or someone shares their knowledge with us, everybody wins, especially our patients. We’ve created these pages, “For Healthcare Professionals,” to share what we’ve learned with colleagues throughout the medica profession. Our hope is that this information will help other pediatric experts diagnose or treat a condition at another hospital or in another part of the world.

Our Research and Innovation section provides information on the most recent research done by our doctors and surgeons on a range of topics. We are pioneering new treatments and procedures to that improve outcomes and shorten the time children spend in the hospital, all aimed at lessening the burden of childhood disease.

Charting Pediatrics is a weekly podcast that our specialists produce for pediatric healthcare providers around the US and the world. Each podcast examines the latest treatments for the most common complaints in pediatric medicine. Listen and subscribe on Spotify, iTunes and Google Play.
