Pediatric Surgery

The Division of Pediatric Surgery provides the finest in patient care for children from the newborn stage through late adolescence. The unique nature of medical and surgical care of children requires rigorous residency and fellowship training.

In the Division of Pediatric Surgery, we collaborate with pediatric anesthesia, emergency medicine, ICU, gastroenterology and other pediatric subspecialists. We also work closely with specialty nursing staff, physical and occupational therapy, child life experts and other MUSC Children’s Hospital resources to provide high quality, patient-focused care.

Over the years, many new and advanced surgical techniques were developed by surgeons in our division and passed-on to residents and surgeons in-training.

Meet our faculty and learn about their areas of expertise.
