Meet the Team

At Children's, nurses, surgeons and anesthesiologists have received specialized training in pediatric surgical specialty services. The pediatric surgeons focus on delivering the best possible outcomes at every stage of surgery.

Many studies have shown that surgeons devoted to the care of children deliver better pediatric surgical outcomes. It is not only the surgery that is important, but the overall care and management of the child during hospitalization.

Pediatric otolaryngology surgeries are available at all four Children's surgical locations.


The following pediatric otolaryngologists perform surgery at Children's, manage the otolaryngology needs of patients admitted to the hospital and provide services to all patients coming to Children's Emergency Department requiring care by an otolaryngologist with advanced pediatric otolaryngology training. They are active members of our medical staff.
