  • Circumcision
    You have an important decision to make before you take your newborn son home: whether to circumcise him. Before deciding, talk to your doctor and consider the issues.
  • Cleft Lip and Palate
    Oral-facial clefts are birth defects in which the tissues of the mouth or lip don't form properly during fetal development. The good news is that both cleft lip and cleft palate are treatable.
  • Cochlear Implants
    Sometimes called a "bionic ear," the cochlear implant can restore hearing for many kinds of hearing loss.
  • Enlarged Adenoids
    Often, tonsils and adenoids are surgically removed at the same time. Though some kids need surgery, enlarged adenoids are normal in others.
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux
    When symptoms of heartburn or acid indigestion are frequent or can't be attributed to spicy ingredients, it could be gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). And it can be a problem for kids - even newborns.
  • Hernias
    Hernias are fairly common in kids and hernia repair is the one of the most common surgeries performed on children.
  • Intussusception
    Intussusception is a problem with the intestine in which one portion of the bowel slides into the next, much like the pieces of a telescope. It's the most common cause of intestinal obstruction in children between 3 months and 6 years of age.
  • Middle Ear Infections and Ear Tube Surgery
    Many kids get middle ear infections (otitis media). Doctors may suggest ear tube surgery for those with multiple infections or a hearing loss or speech delay.
  • Stem Cell Transplants
    Stem cells help rebuild a weakened immune system. Stem cell transplants are effective treatments for a wide range of diseases, including cancer.
  • Tear-Duct Obstruction and Surgery
    Blocked tear ducts are a fairly common problem in infants. The earlier they're discovered, the less likely it is that infection will result or surgery will be necessary.
  • Tonsils and Tonsillectomies
    Not everyone knows what tonsils do or why they may need to be removed. Knowing the facts can help alleviate the fears of both parents and kids facing a tonsillectomy.
