Our pediatric surgeons provide consultation and evaluation at several convenient locations in the Triangle area, including:

Nearly all surgery for your child is performed at the main campus at the Duke Children’s Hospital. Outpatient surgical procedures are performed both at Duke Children’s and Duke Ambulatory Surgery Center. All surgery is performed with board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists, along with a fully-trained team of children’s health care nurses, perioperative staff, and separate care areas for children.
The Duke Division of Pediatric General Surgery provides surgical care for the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of general and thoracic disorders in children including congenital malformations, endocrine disorders, tumors, injuries, and various acquired conditions. Duke Children’s Hospital was one of the first centers accredited by the American College of Surgeons in recognition of our optimal resources, teamwork, and standards in providing the highest quality of care for children.
