At Franciscan Hospital for Children, our compassionate and caring staff provides children with the highest quality inpatient and outpatient surgical services in a family-centered environment. Specializing in caring for children with special needs, the surgical team is committed to creating a care plan that meets each child’s individual needs.

The surgical suite is equipped with 3 highly advanced operating rooms, and is used for selected low-risk and minor surgeries. Surgical care is delivered with a sophisticated level of technology and skill to more than 200 patients per month.

Typical surgical procedures include:

  • Orthopedic surgery (surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system.)
  • Oral, ENT and Ophthalmic surgery (procedures performed on the eye, ear, nose, mouth, jaw, and throat.)
  • Botox injections for treatment of limb spasticity.
