    Making Steps Today to Better Tomorrow's Outcome

    In the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery, we understand the importance of doing what we can today to understand and treat the unknowns of tomorrow.  We continuously explore medical horizons through faculty involvement in clinical and basic laboratory research.

    Our multidisciplinary practice allows us to explore multiple fields of research.  These fields include clinical research, basic research, and trauma research.  We have nearly 10 labs dedicated to different research studies to better the lives of kids now and in the future.
