Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Some children with complex problems may require the expertise of a variety of pediatric specialists beyond those in our Pediatric Ophthalmology Program. For situations that require a multidisciplinary approach, we offer a wealth of expertise in every pediatric field, including radiology, anesthesiology, endocrinology, neurosurgery, oncology, orthopedics and urology.

Whenever necessary, specialists from across the spectrum of care will work together to meet the needs of our young patients.
