The best, comprehensive care for your child

Maimonides Children’s HospitalMaimonides 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.

Specializing in maxillofacial surgery for cleft lip and cleft palate repair

Oral and maxillofacial surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of birth defects, injuries, and diseases of the jaw, mouth, teeth, and facial structure, such as cleft lip and cleft palate. Maimonides Children’s Hospital is one of few Brooklyn hospitals specializing in the diagnosis, surgical treatment, and management of cleft lip and cleft palate. We also treat other maxillofacial problems such as Pierre Robin syndrome, hemifacial microsomia, Treacher-Collins syndrome, lip-nasal adhesion, and nasal asymmetry.

Children dealing with oral and maxillofacial issues may need repeated surgeries throughout childhood and adolescence. Our experts are here to manage every stage of treatment and care. Working with advanced technology, which allows for the detection of disease and deformities prior to birth, pediatric surgeons manage the case from the moment your child is born to their teenage years. Our medical experts collaborate with other related departments such as neonatology, anesthesiology, dentistry, speech therapy, and ear, nose, and throat (ENT) to provide comprehensive care.

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.
