UMMC surgeons understand that children are not miniature adults. Pediatric patients have special needs, physically as well emotionally. Children’s of Mississippi’s care team is dedicated to making young patients as comfortable as possible while reducing parent’s concerns and apprehensions.
Pediatric specialties that perform operations include general surgery, urology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, cardiothoracic, neurosurgery, dentistry, gastroenterology, craniofacial, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, pulmonology, hematology, oncology and fetal medicine. Thousands of ambulatory and inpatient surgeries are performed each year at the state’s only hospital for children.
At Batson Children’s Hospital, anesthesiology is designed with children’s health and comfort in mind. Sedation is used when needed, but strategies ranging from medical play to driving battery-operated cars to procedures help children cope with surgery and related procedures.
At Children’s of Mississippi, our pediatric experts work together to complete a full circle of care for your child.
