Pediatric Surgery

For most parents, about the only thing worse than a child in the hospital is a child in the hospital for surgery. NuHealth’s pediatric surgeons understand just how frightening the experience can be for children and families alike, and when your child undergoes surgery at Nassau University Medical Center, we’ll do everything possible to make the experience as painless as possible for all concerned.

  • Abdominal Wall Defects

  • Hernias
  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
  • Intestinal Polyps
  • Neck Masses
  • Trauma
  • Tumors
