Division of Pediatric Surgery

Our Mission

Nationally recognized specialists from the University of Maryland Division of Pediatric Surgery apply the latest technological advances and proven surgical principles to a broad range of complex pediatric surgical problems.

Our pediatric surgery faculty are part of a multidisciplinary team whose care may begin before birth thanks to early diagnostic imaging techniques once thought impossible. We bring innovative specialty treatments to patients from birth through 18 years of age, using the broad resources of an outstanding academic medical research institution. We provide care that is second to none, and in many cases save the lives of children whose families had been given little to no hope for their child’s recovery.

Specialty areas include a multitude of complex problems including Head and Neck, Thoracic, Abdominal, and Urologic diseases and defects.

Basic science and clinical research are an integral part of our mission. We are constantly looking for ways to improve quality of life for our babies and children.
