Patient and Parent Education
It can be scary and overwhelming to learn your child needs surgery. APSA’s list of conditions will help you better understand the problem, what can be done and what to expect when considering pediatric surgery.
It is important to note that this information is intended as resource only and is not to be used or relied on for any diagnostic or treatment purposes. Please speak with your child’s doctor and medical team about his or her individual medical needs.
Use APSA’s Find a Pediatric Surgeon to locate a pediatric surgeon in your area.
