General Pediatric Surgery

Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's

Specialized surgical approaches for infants, children and teens

Pediatric surgeons operate on all children, from newborns to adolescents. Their expertise is essential, because a child is not a small adult. As a child grows, his or her anatomy changes, and a pediatric surgeon’s skills are needed to perform operations on delicate tissues and structures in his or her body.

Baylor Scott & White Mclane Children's pediatric surgeons collaborate with other medical specialties (and in some cases, surgical specialties) as well as support services to provide high-quality, safe and emotionally supportive care for each child.
