Our comprehensive surgical team at Children's Hospital Colorado offers the most innovative care for every surgical intervention, thanks to rigorous research initiatives designed to explore diagnostic and treatment approaches that will deliver the best possible outcomes for kids. Because our team is diverse — from a range of surgical specialties, to board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists, to respiratory therapists, child life specialists, pediatric nurses and more — our research efforts are, too.
Our current projects explore gene therapy, wound healing physiology, the diagnostic and treatment possibilities of big data and many more.
"The Center for Children's Surgery is committed to the continuous improvement of the surgical care of children through innovation and research. We have NIH-funded surgeon scientists researching all aspects of care, from the laboratory bench to the bedside."
