A child who needs surgery deserves the most advanced options available, delivered by compassionate experts who specialize in the surgical care of children. At Sutter Children's Center, Sacramento, your child will be in the hands of experienced and compassionate pediatric surgeons who are fellowship-trained and board-certified. They also have access to a network of pediatric specialists if needed.
Focusing on your child's well-being first, our surgeons use the latest technology and procedures to treat all problems and conditions that require surgery, including:
- General surgery
- Heart and vascular surgery
- Neonatal surgery
- Orthopedic surgery
- Pediatric oncology surgery
- Spine surgery
Because your child's metabolism is very different than an adult, he or she will need specialized care from a pediatric anesthesiologist if sedation is needed for diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical procedures. At Sutter Children's Center, Sacramento, your child will be treated by doctors with special training in pediatric anesthesiology. These doctors are on call 24 hours a day and provide sedation that ranges from light to general anesthesia, including localized nerve blocks for specific procedures.
Pediatric anesthesiologists also provide pain management techniques and treatment for pulmonary valve problems. Before any procedure, you are encouraged to speak with your child's pediatric anesthesiologist to find out specific treatment options.
