Pediatric Surgery

Dr. Robert Cina and provider with a patient

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.
