Surgery - Pediatric

A surgeon from Kentucky Children's Hospital examines an infant with the patient's family in attendance.

UK Pediatric Surgery provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment for neonates, infants, children, and adolescents with congenital anomalies and acquired conditions of the head and neck, chest wall and thorax, abdomen, gastro-intestinal tract, genitourinary system, and extremities. Special services and facilities include a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Level I Trauma Center, and a Burn Center.

Working with your primary care team, our experienced team of pediatric surgeons will plan and perform the surgery in the Kentucky Children's Hospital state-of-the-art pediatric surgical facilities.

We know that a child's surgery can be difficult and scary for the entire family, so we work with a team of specialists including psychologists and therapists to make sure everything about your experience is as stress-free as possible. See this guide to help get ready for surgery and the care your child will need during recovery.
