About Pediatric Surgery

If your child needs surgery, know that they are in the expert care of OU Children's Physicians pediatric physicians. We treat children exclusively. ​

  • We use child-sized equipment and innovative techniques.
  • Family-centered care is our focus, meaning parents can be with their child on the way to the operating room and immediately after surgery. We also have Child Life specialists to help children and families cope with a hospital stay.
  • Our surgeons have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and the newest treatment options to help your child recover as quickly as possible from surgery.
  • In many cases, surgeries can be done minimally invasive meaning: 
  • Small incisions
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring
