You never quite anticipate that your child will require surgery, however, the possibility is always there. At California Pediatric Surgical pediatric surgeryGroup in Santa Barbara, CA, your team of board-certified pediatric surgeons and their professional support staff provide the expertise and compassion that you and your child must have for the best outcome and recovery. Dr. Tamir Keshen, Dr. Charles Stolar, and Dr. Sang Lee know children well, and they can help you navigate a complex and worrisome time.

Why pediatric surgery?

Patient circumstances vary, but in general, children need surgery to:

  • Repair traumatic injuries from sports, motor vehicle accidents, burns or falls
  • Remake congenital defect (as a newborn, or throughout childhood as required)
  • Remove foreign bodies from the respiratory or gastrointestinal tract
  • Remove cancerous tumors and benign cysts
  • Repair inguinal, hiatal, umbilical, or abdominal hernias

Your pediatric surgeons in Santa Barbara, CA, are highly trained in children's anatomy and physiology. They fully understand that a child's body is very different from an adult's, and as such, the young patient has specialized needs in terms of sedation, anesthetic, aftercare, and rehabilitation. The doctors also practice surgical techniques which are as minimally invasive as possible.

It's a team approach

At California Pediatric Surgical Group, your team of doctors, PAs, nurses, and office staff are experts in all phases of pediatric surgery—from preparation to the day of surgery to follow-up care. Your questions will be answered fully, and you'll be informed every step of the way about medications, pre- and post-procedure testing, any ETAs on returning to school and routine activities, proper diet, and more. Plus, appointment scheduling, insurance matters, and coordination with PT, OT, and other medical specialists are thoughtfully facilitated.
