The Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai strives for the highest level of excellence for our patients and their families. We are recognized for providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for the full spectrum of medical conditions necessitating general surgical intervention for infants, children, and adolescents. Our expert pediatric surgeons specialize in treating diseases and disorders of the chest and abdomen as well as those of the skin and soft tissue. Our surgeons offer innovative minimally invasive surgical approaches for children of all ages, ranging from complex neonatal procedures to laparoscopic and thoracoscopic interventions for adolescents. Our team personalizes treatment plans to improve the experience and outcomes of our patients.
Patients managed by the surgeons and staff in the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai will not only receive exceptional surgical care, but they will experience outstanding comprehensive, multidisciplinary approaches to the management of their unique conditions. We work collaboratively with specialists in a variety of pediatric and adult fields to provide the best care for you and your child. Through our close work with groups such as Pediatric Radiology, Pediatric Anesthesiology, Pathology, Pediatric Cardiology, Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Pediatric Pulmonary, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Pediatric Nephrology, and pediatric and neonatal intensivists, we are able to offer customized treatment plans that best serve our patients and their families and provide optimal outcomes.
At Mount Sinai, caretakers from the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery recognize the importance of involving patients and their families in the care of the child or adolescent. We work closely with patients, their parents, and their families in order to provide a friendly, comfortable, and supportive environment with the goal of making your experience through a stressful time as positive as possible. We collaborate with support staff of social workers, child life specialists, therapists, and chaplains, who can provide additional guidance and reassurance and can help to navigate families through the medical system. Our Meet Me at Mount Sinai program provides an opportunity for you and your child to preview the hospital experience prior to the operation and ask questions, so that everyone will be prepared when it is time for surgery.
Our surgeons, nurse practitioner, and office staff are in constant communication with families and are available 24/7. Parents and families are kept updated on the patient’s condition and progress on a regular basis and are happy to answer questions or provide explanations regarding diagnosis, prognosis, and planned treatment approaches.
