When faced with the prospect of your child's surgery, you want experienced surgeons. You want to know that your child is receiving the best and most compassionate care, and that the healthcare providers are working as a team. At Children’s Hospital, you’ll find world-class pediatric urological surgeons, specialized pediatric anesthesiologists, and dedicated surgical advanced practice nurses with expertise in meeting children’s unique surgical needs.

Since 2008, we have performed more than 1,113 surgical procedures to remove kidney stones. This experience means that our entire team is extremely familiar with these procedures.
