Children's Mercy Hospitals and
Clinics offers nationally recognized surgical
services and state-of-the-art operating facilities. Our
skilled surgical teams provide a full range of services
for children of all ages - from general surgery to
specialized surgical care.
Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is beneficial to patients in many
ways: shorter hospital stays, faster recovery and reduced risk of
postoperative complications. Surgeons at Children's
Mercy conduct minimally invasive surgery
in specially equipped facilities designed to give patients the
best care possible.
for Prospective Clinical Trials
Our surgical team is dedicated to the innovation
and adoption of cutting-edge techniques that will
potentially benefit patients who need the most specialized,
delicate surgical care. We provide access to a number of
prospective clinical studies, both completed and in progress.
for Pectus Excavatum and Carinatum
Children's Mercy provides specialized surgical care for
children born with these conditions, which lead
to abnormal development of the ribs and sternum.
Our team provides specialized craniofacial and neurosurgery care for children who are born with – or acquire – deformities of the skull or facial skeleton such as
craniosynostosis or facial tumors.
Cleft Lip and Palate Center
Children born with a cleft lip or palate will receive comprehensive treatment through a full range of specialty services, including plastic surgery,
dentistry, speech, hearing specialists, speech pathologists, genetics, social work, and nutrition and feeding.
