From common to complex

Our experts in pediatric surgery treat conditions from common to rare, including appendicitis, hernias, tumors and birth defects. We work closely with a team of pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric anesthesiologists and other specialists such as pediatric home care providers.

Outpatient procedures

Our pediatric surgeons perform thousands of procedures on newborns, toddlers, young children and teens every year. They specialize in the diagnosis, preoperative, operative and postoperative management of problems in children that can be corrected surgically.

The same team that treats children on our main campus also performs surgeries in Murfreesboro.
