Our pediatric surgeons are highly skilled in the treatment of chest wall deformities, including pectus excavatum (funnel chest), and excel in procedures involving the lung, mediastinum and esophagus.
Vascular Anomalies Clinic
Some vascular anomalies (blood vessels that haven’t developed correctly) don’t require treatment, but it’s important to get the right diagnosis. If surgical treatment is needed, our pediatric surgeons offer an unparalleled level of expertise in the treatment of vascular anomalies, including vascular tumors and vascular malformations.
Pediatric Ambulatory Wound Services (PAWS)
Johns Hopkins All Children's offers customized, expert care to aid in the healing of wounds, including severe burns, non-healing wounds and ulcers.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Our pediatric surgeons are highly skilled in minimally invasive surgical procedures, including an innovative technique in which small "key hole" incisions are made in the chest or abdomen. Minimally invasive surgery results in less pain and shorter hospital stays and recovery times.
Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a serious developmental defect of the diaphragm, which allows a baby’s abdominal organs to move through the diaphragm and locate higher in the chest cavity, obstructing the lungs from growing and functioning properly. Doctors and surgeons in our Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia program specialize in the most severe cases of CDH, offering a lifeline to families who have received a difficult diagnosis.
