PeaceHealth pediatric surgeons offer expert medical care with a personal, kid- and family-friendly approach. Pediatric surgeons treat children of all ages, from newborns to teenagers. They have extra training for conditions that only affect children, such as gastroschisis and other birth defects.
The PeaceHealth pediatric surgery team works together to keep your little one comfortable and relaxed. Your child will receive the least invasive methods possible, including endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques. This may mean fewer and smaller incisions, less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery.
Your team may include neonatologists (newborn specialists) and pediatric-trained anesthesiologists, nurses and support personnel who are with you along the way.
If you want a second opinion, let us help you make a decision that is right for your family.
You can find a PeaceHealth pediatric surgeon at PeaceHealth. Your child will receive the excellent quality and personalized care you trust.
PeaceHealth is Oregon’s leading medical center for children with pectus conditions or abnormal development of the chest wall. Without treatment, these conditions may cause serious health problems later in life.
Your child is cared for by surgeons from nationally-recognized pediatric hospitals, right here close to home. These include surgeons from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Shriners Children’s Hospital in Portland, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital.
Your child’s surgery takes place in pediatric-specific operating rooms, which have advanced technology. This includes imaging that can be sent to specialists during surgery for consultations in real time. After surgery, children recover in the Pediatrics and Adolescent Care Unit, designed just for kids.
Using audio and video technology, telemedicine allows our pediatric team to immediately consult with specialists at the Doernbecher Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Portland. As a result, many trauma patients can stay at Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend instead of going to Portland for care.
Experienced neonatologists (doctors who specialize in newborn medicine) and specially trained nurses provide expert post-surgery care in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
