USC General Pediatric Surgery provides outstanding surgical services for children who come to our hospital, as well as at several satellite surgical offices that serve a broad geographic territory, from the San Fernando Valley to the San Gabriel Valley and beyond.
Surgery Programs and Services
Children's Hospital Los Angeles provides the full spectrum of surgical care—from routine procedures to complex surgeries—in two modern, leading-edge surgical centers. Many surgery centers are not able to provide care for children who need complex operations. These types of cases are routinely treated at Children's Hospital.
Our surgeons have access to all of the specialists who may be needed for a child's recovery. Post-surgery care is coordinated by a multispecialty team of pediatric experts and children can be smoothly transferred from the operating room to an inpatient setting.
