The best, comprehensive care for your child
Maimonides Children’s Hospital specializes in a full spectrum of surgeries, ensuring your child gets the most comprehensive care possible. Our team represents the best in medical excellence and compassion.
Outstanding pediatric general surgery
We are dedicated to managing the treatment of your child, even before they are born. Our experts provide services ranging from prenatal procedures to complex surgeries, as well as follow-up care once your child has returned home. We use minimally invasive procedures to reduce risk and keep your child as comfortable as possible.
Our board-certified physicians, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and pediatric anesthesiologists collaborate with other divisions to give children the most comprehensive care possible. We are also committed to family-centered care. Parents are always encouraged to stay overnight if their child is required to remain in the hospital.
Brooklyn’s first pediatric robot-assisted surgey
Maimonides Children’s Hospital was the first hospital to offer robot-assisted surgery to the children of Brooklyn. Robot-assisted surgery uses robotic arms that are controlled by a surgeon and are fitted with various instruments in order to perform difficult operations through tiny incisions. These robotic arms are guided by a small camera and are designed with wrists that can be moved in more directions than a human hand. With the help of the robot, our surgeons use very delicate movements to perform complex surgeries in tight spaces. Since 2006, pediatric urologists and pediatric general surgeons at Maimonides Children’s Hospital have used this technology to help heal some of the smallest members of our Brooklyn community.
After undergoing robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery, we see that our patients have less pain, leave the hospital sooner and return to their normal daily activities more quickly.

Our surgical team includes outstanding anesthesiologists
Whether your child requires anesthesia for emergency surgery, radiographic procedures, or chemotherapy, we offer the highest quality care with as little risk as possible. An expert anesthesiology team is essential to safe and successful surgical procedures, but children may also require anesthesiology in other situations. Children undergoing some invasive or uncomfortable procedures such as chemotherapy or endoscopic testing may benefit from sedation. Our team is also experienced in ensuring the comfort of children with conditions like Down Syndrome, who may have special needs.
Our team of pediatric anesthesiologists, fellows, and pediatric nurses provides outstanding pediatric anesthesiology care. Our staff works closely with physicians from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care, among other departments. Child Life specialists, who are committed to your child’s well-being, are also on-call.
