comprehensive surgical care for infants, children and teens

Dayton Children’s Hospital is an American College of Surgeons verified Level 1 Children's Surgery Center that provides comprehensive surgical care for infants, children and teens in an environment that is just right for them.

Our board-certified pediatric surgeons have advanced medical training and extensive experience caring for kids, and they collaborate with other members of the surgical care team to ensure that each child’s unique needs are met. In addition, Dayton Children’s uses pediatric anesthesiologists, the only anesthesiologists in the region trained to safely sedate children of all sizes. And, our pediatric surgeons provide trauma care and surgery for the children in our community through our Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.

"When it comes to your child, any surgery, regardless of how minor it may seem, is a big deal. We take that responsibility very seriously. Our goal is to make the entire experience exceptional by providing wrap-around support and getting your child back to doing what they do best - being a kid." - Daniel Robie, MD, surgeon-in-chief and associate medical officer
