General surgeons with a special focus on children's unique surgical needs and concerns diagnose, treat and provide follow-up care for a wide range of pediatric surgical patients at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.
Specialists work with their colleagues in radiology using the latest techniques – including ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging – to maximize diagnostic accuracy.
