Welcome to Community Pediatric Surgeons.

Community Pediatric SurgeonsFinding out that your child needs to have surgery is something that most parents never want to hear. At Community Pediatric Surgeons, we understand that completely. And, thanks to our years of experience in working with parents and their children, we do our best to calm those fears. The best way, we’ve found, is to keep you informed as much as possible. From diagnosis, to procedure, to post-surgical care instructions, we’re here for you. Rest assured, your child is in good hands.

Grant creates "Surgery Buddies" for kids

Pediatric 'Surgery Buddies'In April 2011, the Community Health Network Foundation provided a grant to support Community Pediatric Surgeons’ “Surgery Buddy” program that helps children who need surgery understand what to expect. The dolls allow hands-on medical play during a pre-op clinic visit and surgical staff are able to show the child where a bandage or stitch may be located following the procedure. Staff also use the dolls to demonstrate how equipment may be used, and how the child might feel after surgery. The program also gives kids a chance to express their emotions, ask questions, gain a sense of control and find comfort before and after surgery. The “Surgery Buddies” are hand-made by hospital volunteers.
