Pediatric General Surgery
Pediatric general surgery covers a broad range of procedures including minor procedures like
inguinal hernias, as well as more complex procedures related to
tumors, removal of spleens, gall bladders. Pediatric general surgeons use both laparoscopic
(minimally invasive) and conventional surgical approaches. Arnold Palmer Hospital provides general surgery for children and adolescents, performed by pediatric
fellowship-trained surgeons. These same surgeons
are also pediatric trauma surgeons, and are able to handle the most complex
surgical emergencies related to trauma.
