Surgical Services


Instead of making a larger incision, ports are inserted into the abdomen, allowing surgery to be conducted using a camera and specialized tools. Our surgeons use this minimally-invasive approach as often as possible.


More involved surgeries, such as cystectomies, require an incision to be made into the abdominal cavity.


Surgery may be conducted on an imperforate (closed) hymen to create an opening, preventing a buildup of menstrual blood and other complications.

Surgical Correction of Atresia and Anatomical Discrepancies

This includes surgical treatment for vaginal and other genital malformations.

Examinations under Anesthesia

This option is available for younger patients, or those with developmental disabilities, who may find it difficult to feel comfortable and cooperate during an exam. Anesthesia may also be used when a more detailed exam is needed to investigate and diagnose a condition.

Pediatric Anesthesia at Children's Mercy

At Children’s Mercy, a pediatric anesthesiologist is an active member of your child’s care team before, during and after their surgery or procedure. We administer anesthesia for more than 27,000 kids per year—that’s 74 per day—so our team is experienced at finding just-right doses of medication for kids of all sizes. During the procedure, your anesthesiologist will carefully monitor your child’s heartbeat, blood pressure and breathing. Afterwards, your anesthesiologist will make sure your child wakes up as comfortably as possible and continue to help with pain control. Learn more about pediatric anesthesiology at Children's Mercy.
