Division of Pediatric Surgery


Jacqueline Saito, MD, MSCI, finishes a followup visit with patient Carrah McDaniel.

The Division of Pediatric Surgery has built a strong reputation in patient care, research and teaching as we continue to expand our services and community outreach. Our division was established in 1972 under pioneering surgeon Jessie Ternberg, MD, among the first to recognize that children have surgical problems distinct from those seen in adults. Today, we offer robust treatment in trauma and congenital conditions, tackle the complications of short-gut syndrome through research, and attract top fellowship candidates.
