Surgical Treatments for Children

Available Surgical Treatments for Children

The Pediatric General Surgery Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center is one of only a few full-service surgical programs in New Jersey, devoted exclusively to children’s care. We work closely with patients and families to prepare them for their procedure and ultimately provide seamless and comprehensive care. Our board-certified surgeons operate on children ranging from newborns through adolescents.

Routine pediatric general surgery operations are performed in a congenial, same-day surgery setting. For those children who require a longer hospital stay, there is dedicated pediatric staff trained to care for children and their family during the post-operative time. Our child life specialists are here to care for your child and help him/her cope with the hospitalization.
