Physician-scientists in the Duke Division of Pediatric General Surgery conduct clinical research studies focused on improving surgical outcomes for pediatric patients.
Current research initiatives are listed below.
Spleen Surgery Program
Our Spleen Surgery Program examines the outcomes of spleen surgery and partial splenectomy to treat a number of pediatric disease processes, particularly congenital hemolytic anemias.
Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Program
Our physician-scientists collaborate with a number of other Duke experts to examine the best possible surgical approaches to treating children with congenital diaphragmatic hernias.
Our program pairs exceptional patient care with ongoing research efforts in order to offer our patients the best possible outcomes.
