Conditions We Treat

The Division of Pediatric Surgery provides outstanding coordinated care for a full range of pediatric conditions. In particular, our surgeons specialize in treatment of:

Pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children arises from a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. As one of the few hospitals with a dedicated pediatric IBD Center, Mount Sinai remains a world leader in the treatment of IBD including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

In the 2014-2015 edition of "Best Children's Hospital", U.S. News & World Report named Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai among the country's best in Pediatric Gastroenterology, attesting to the strength of our commitment to excellence in care.

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia

We specialize in treating infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a congenital malformation of the diaphragm. It is a life-threatening pathology and a major cause of death due to two major complications: pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension.

Pyloric stenosis

Pyloric stenosis occurs when food cannot pass freely from the stomach to the small intestine, because the entrance between the two is constricted. The majority of cases occur in infants. We offer state-of-the-art testing, referring patients to our team of pediatric surgeons.

Anal atresia

Our team provides comprehensive pediatric surgical care for anal atresia, a problem with the development of the anus and the part of the intestine just over the anus that can make it difficult or impossible for a child to pass stool.

Wilms' tumor

Wilms' Tumor or nephroblastoma is cancer of the kidneys that typically occurs in children. The exact cause of this tumor in most children is unknown. Our multidisciplinary team offers the utmost patient care to treat this cancer.
