Pediatric Surgery

MUSC Children’s Health is South Carolina’s only Level 1 Children’s Surgery Center, displaying excellence in inpatient & outpatient surgery.

The MUSC Children's Health Pediatric Surgery team treats children from the newborn stage through late adolescence. The unique nature of medical and surgical care of children requires rigorous residency and fellowship training.

We collaborate with pediatric anesthesia, emergency medicine, ICU, gastroenterology and other pediatric subspecialists. We also work closely with specialty nursing staff, physical and occupational therapy, child life experts and other Children’s Hospital resources to allow our team to provide high quality, patient-focused care.

We are proud to be part of these subspecialty teams, including Gastroenterology & GI Surgery which U.S. News & World Report ranked among the top in the nation and the Southeast in the Best Children’s Hospitals 2022 – 23 survey.
