Department of Surgery
Division of Pediatric Surgery
The pediatric surgeons of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School operate on children from the newborn stage through the teenage years. We are all board certified in general surgery and pediatric surgery and have trained at many of the leading pediatric centers in the country.
We are academic pediatric surgeons, not just in practice. That means we have the following priorities:
1) To provide the highest-quality, modern and state-of-the-art pediatric surgical care for your child, in the safest possible environment, while always being customer focused and assuring that you, the parent, are fully informed and as comfortable as possible.
2) To seek new knowledge in our field and to disseminate that knowledge to our colleagues in this country and around the world so as to improve the care of children everywhere.
3) To teach medical students and residents how to care for children, recognizing the obligation to provide for the physicians of the future, but always in a closely supervised and safe fashion.
Our surgeons operate at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a modern pediatric facility that is the only free-standing tertiary pediatric hospital in the state.
We understand that weight-reduction surgery is a huge commitment to a new, healthy lifestyle, and Rutgers Adolescent Obesity and Foregut Surgery Program is dedicated to supporting you through each step of the process, from your initial questions and consideration of weight-loss surgery, through the steps you’ll take to prepare, to the actual procedure and beyond. We’re here for you. Though it takes hard work, you won't be on your own.
