Finding out your child is dealing with a disease, malformation or traumatic injury can be one of the most stressful moments in a parent’s life. Here at California Pediatric Surgery Group, we understand that compassionate, comprehensive medical care and support is exactly what you and your family need during this critical time. We are the leaders in minimally invasive surgery, correcting a wide range of health problems, injuries and birth defects to improve the health and quality of life of your newborn, toddler, child or teenager.
We provide a highly trained and experienced team of pediatric surgeons and other medical professionals to guide you through the process from diagnosis and treatment to follow-up care. We take the time to sit down with you and answer all of your questions and concerns because we also understand that this can be a difficult time. By providing you and your family with the information you need when you need it, you can rest assured that your child’s health is in good hands.
We are certified by the American Board of Surgery to provide major corrective surgeries and tumor removals in children of all ages including newborns. We also offer the latest in surgical technology and techniques to provide the most minimally invasive treatment options available, which means a shorter recovery time and fewer side effects (because we believe that children should be able to get back to enjoying life as quickly as possible after their surgery).
There are many childhood conditions that may require surgery, from Crohn’s disease and congenital malformations to tumors and hernias. The most common types of pediatric surgical procedures include circumcision, umbilical hernia repair, congenital inguinal hernia repair and an appendectomy (the removal of the appendix). There are also four main categories or areas of expertise when it comes to pediatric surgery including:
- Neonatal (e.g. birth defects)
- Prenatal (where abnormalities may lead to fetal surgery)
- Trauma (e.g. accident-related injuries)
- Oncology (the removal of tumors, both benign and cancerous)
At California Pediatric Surgical Group we tailor our treatment and surgical care not just to the specific disorder or trauma itself but also to the patient’s age. After all, there are physiological and even psychological differences between young patients and adults, and not only do we provide the medical care that will meet your child’s unique health needs but we will also provide the support, comfort and tenderness that children require to feel comfortable in an otherwise new and potentially stressful setting.
Our team of medical experts, nurse practitioners and physicians associates are here to walk you through the process every step of the way so you always fully understand the surgical treatment your child is getting.
