    UK Pediatric Surgery provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment for neonates, infants, children, and adolescents with congenital anomalies and acquired conditions of the head and neck, chest wall and thorax, abdomen, gastro-intestinal tract, genitourinary system, and extremities. Special services and facilities include a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Level I Trauma Center, and a Burn Center.

    Working with your primary care team, our experienced team of pediatric surgeons will plan and perform the surgery in the Kentucky Children's Hospital state-of-the-art pediatric surgical facilities.

    We know that a child's surgery can be difficult and scary for the entire family, so we work with a team of specialists including psychologists and therapists to make sure everything about your experience is as stress-free as possible. We have even prepared a Parents' Guide to Surgery to help patients and their families get ready for the surgery itself and the care their child will need after.
