Meet Our Faculty
We are very active in thoracoscopic and laparoscopic procedures including Nissen fundoplications, pyloromyotomies, VATS, endorectal pull-through, etc. We perform routine and advanced procedures including minimally invasive CDH repair, pulmonary lobectomies, endorectal pull-throughs, aortopexies etc. We also utilize the daVinci system with fellows working at both console and bedside.
The Pediatric Surgical Service has full responsibility in collaboration with neonatology for care of surgical patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatric Intensive Care Units.
Arkansas Children’s Hospital is one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country. As part of the only pediatric health system in our state, Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) serves as the tertiary pediatric facility in Arkansas with full-time helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and several ground transport units. Our pediatric surgery service performs over 2,400 cases per year. Our pediatric surgery fellows average between 1,000 and 1,400 operative cases during their training. Our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit currently has 90 beds (and is expanding) and provides a good mix and volume of neonatal index cases. Arkansas Children’s Hospital functions as a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center.
