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.
Our Single-Visit Surgery program allows families of children diagnosed with umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia, hydrocele or epigastric hernia to be seen at Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas for a clinic appointment in the morning and have the needed procedure performed the same day. This program offers families the convenience of a single visit to the hospital, rather than multiple visits over time.
