Single-Visit Surgery

Children's Mercy provides the region’s only Single-Visit Surgery program, providing excellent pediatric surgical care in one convenient visit. Patients are seen at Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas for a clinic appointment in the morning and are able to have the procedure they need that same day.

Program Highlights
