Pediatric surgery

From the most common to the most complex procedures, Beaumont Children's Hospital pediatric surgeons offer the most advanced care for the ones who matter most. This now includes expanded pediatric surgery services in both Royal Oak and Troy.

Pediatric surgery patients are cared for by dedicated surgical teams with board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric surgeons. Many surgeries are performed in the soothing, child-friendly environment of our Ghesquiere Family Center for Children's Surgery, which features state-of-the-art operating rooms.

At Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak and Beaumont Hospital, Troy, we offer the latest surgical approaches including advanced minimally invasive procedures for all pediatric patients, even our smallest infants. Our pediatric intensive care unit in Royal Oak provides post-surgical care and is staffed around the clock by fellowship-trained pediatric intensivists.
