Depend on the Augusta, Georgia Region’s Largest Team of Pediatric Surgeons
A team of board-certified pediatric surgeons representing all surgical subspecialties staffs the Pediatric Surgery Department at Children’s Hospital of Georgia in Augusta.
From routine pediatric procedures to complex pediatric trauma care, our pediatric surgeons perform more than 6,000 surgical procedures for children each year—caring for children from premature infants to age 18.
Pediatric Surgery Features
Our pediatric surgery group offers:
A DinoStore from which pediatric surgical patients can select a free toy at each visit. This allows children to gain a measure of control and serves as a conversation piece, allowing caregivers to bond with their patients.
A pediatric laparoscopic suite that allows surgeons to operate through “peep holes” rather than larger incisions. Children's Hospital of Georgia is one of only two centers in Georgia specializing in these minimally invasive procedures that result in less pain, smaller scars and shorter hospital stays.
Board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists
Nine pediatric operating/procedure rooms designed and equipped especially for children
Operating Room BUDS (Better Understanding During Surgery). These specially trained volunteers support families whose children are undergoing surgery
Pediatric radiology and a specialized X-ray department for children
Pediatric trauma service for children ages 0-12 years
Perioperative services to deliver compassionate care before and after surgery. Dedicated nurse managers will explain each step of your child’s surgery and recovery
Satellite clinics and telemedicine to make pediatric surgical expertise available in outlying areas
