Nicklaus Children's pediatric surgeons and pediatric anesthesiologists are specially trained in the unique physiologic needs and responses of children. They understand the special risks associated with pediatric surgery and anesthesia, and have the expertise and knowledge to address complications should they arise. When your child needs surgery, insist on a pediatric surgeon and anesthesiologist who specialize in treating newborns, children and adolescents. Nicklaus Children's offers a full spectrum of pediatric surgery  specialists and features 14 on-staff pediatric anesthesiologists. Together, these experts perform more than more than 2,000 major and 1,500 minor pediatric surgeries each year.

Our pediatric surgery team is comprised of attending surgeons, pediatric-specific nurses, nurse practioners, physician assistants, surgical fellows, medical residents, and medical students. Care of Nicklaus Children's Hospital patients is managed by an attending pediatric surgeon, who also supervises the care given by all team members. Our approach to medical care means better care for Nicklaus Children's Hospital patients as members of the surgical team are available 24 hours a day, every day.
