General and specialized surgery for your child

Surgery. We know the very word can be scary when it comes to your own child. Rest assured: At CHoR, your child is not only in good hands, but among the best hands. Our surgeons take a special focus on your child’s unique surgical needs. We work closely with you to address your concerns and diagnose, treat and provide follow-up care for your child - whether infant, teen or any age in between. 

Our surgical specialists also work with colleagues in radiology using the latest techniques – including ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging – to maximize diagnostic accuracy.
