With a commitment to innovation, the Division of General Pediatrics emphasizes the use of minimally-invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, which can reduce discomfort and speed recovery times in young patients. The division has emerged as a leader in such areas as oncology and Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO).

We offer treatment modalities for endoscopy, laparoscopic surgery and Robotic Surgery as part of our Minimally Invasive Surgery program.

We are the only program in the nation with expertise in virtually every pediatric ophthalmologic subspecialty.

Through our use of the latest medical diagnostic protocols, surgical treatments and cutting-edge research, we treat the little things, the big things...and everything.

Our surgeons regularly volunteer their expertise to national organizations that improve surgical care for children, including:

Central to the Division’s focused research is the Developmental Biology Program, housed in The Saban Research Institute at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

In addition, our Division leads research efforts designed to improve surgical techniques for children.
