Experts in Pediatric Surgery
Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent has been recognized for advanced surgical techniques for children. From operating on premature babies to performing minimally invasive surgery on children of all ages, our pediatric surgeons are passionate about getting children back to their normal routine as quickly as possible.
We know surgery is an emotional experience for a child and their entire family. That’s why our pediatric surgeons are specially trained to operate on little bodies and care deeply about taking the time to nurture your child before, during and after surgery. Our surgeons use equipment and facilities that are specifically designed for healing children’s bodies, and they talk directly to children and listen to their needs. We also have certified child life specialists on staff that gets to know the child before surgery and become a source of comfort on their way to and after surgery.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Within the last decade, new minimally invasive surgical techniques have revolutionized many surgical procedures or children. With less injury to skin, muscle and nerves, there are fewer wound complications; postoperative pain management is easier; and the return to normal activity is quicker. For children, this can mean less time missed at school and a return to sports and play earlier. For parents, it often means less time away from work caring for their child.
