Pediatric Surgery Clinics and Specialties

The pediatric surgeons with Norton Children’s Surgery, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, are part of multidisciplinary care teams who see patients at a variety of specialized clinics. Our approach to care allows your child to be evaluated by several pediatric specialists all in the same visit. These specialists share clinic space together, working to develop a holistic, personalized treatment plan to meet your child’s unique needs.

If anesthesia is necessary, the multidisciplinary team will work with specially trained pediatric anesthesiologists to minimize the need for sedation or anesthesia. Our nurse navigator will guide your family from your first appointment through follow-ups to help ensure a seamless experience.
