Based at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, SLUCare pediatric surgeons care for sick and injured children and adolescents from around the St. Louis area and the nation. Our experienced team of experts provides the best possible care in a family-centered, child-friendly environment.
SLUCare pediatric surgeons are specialists in minimally invasive surgery, resulting in smaller scars and faster recovery than with traditional surgery. Some minimally invasive surgeries for children are performed through an incision as small as a keyhole.
