The pediatric surgeons at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital care for a broad range of surgical disorders ranging from minor lesions managed in the outpatient setting to congenital anomalies, tumors and trauma. The surgeons work closely with other pediatric specialists at the hospital to provide comprehensive care for children including those with the most challenging and complex conditions.
The inpatient clinical services we provide include neonatal surgery, cancer surgery, advanced minimal access surgery, non-cardiac thoracic surgery, pediatric gynecology, biliary surgery, intestinal surgery and the management of chest wall deformities such as pectus excavatum. We also provide a full array of outpatient surgical care for conditions such as hernias, hydroceles, undescended testicles, cyst, sinuses and sub-cutaneous lumps and bumps.
We are supported by an 84-bed neonatal intensive care unit, a 25-bed pediatric intensive care unit, and a 17-bed emergency room, as well as a full complement of pediatric specialists including pediatric anesthesiologists, oncologists, gastroenterologists, cardologists, nephrologists and emergency medicine specialists.
We are happy to provide outpatient consultations and clinic services at the Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Offices, at Loma Linda University Medical Center -Murrieta, and at Riverside County Regional Medical Center (RCRMC). We provide inpatient services at both the hospital and at RCRMC.
The pediatric surgeons at the hospital are strongly committed to surgical education and are pleased to be one of fewer than 50 centers in North America that have a fellowship program to train future pediatric surgeons. Additionally, the pediatric surgery service actively participates in the education of general surgery residents and medical students, and is involved in ongoing research projects.
