Pediatric Surgeons in SWFL

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla.- When a child has an illness, injury, or disease that requires surgery, a pediatric surgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat the child.

Children cannot always say what is bothering them, answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and helpful during a medical examination.

When a child needs surgery, pediatric surgeons know how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. Examination rooms and waiting rooms, which may have toys, videos, and reading materials for children, help create a comfortable and nonthreatening environment for the child. Parents are well prepared about the surgery by the pediatric surgeon to help the entire family be more at ease.

Amy Stanfill, a general surgeon at the Golisano Children’s Hospital, joins us in the studio with more information.

Congenital malformations
