Pediatric Surgery


Dr. Glaze Vaughan with patientOur pediatric surgeons provide surgical services specifically designed for children. A pediatric surgeon has different skills and certifications than a general adult care surgeon and is highly trained in pediatric-specific procedures.

We treat a wide variety of conditions, from abdominal and thoracic disorders to head and neck, skin, urinary tract and other issues.

The Pediatric Surgery physicians and staff at East Tennessee Children's Hospital are highly trained and well-prepared to attend to any surgical needs that may affect the health of your child.

Preparing for Surgery

If the time comes for your child to need our surgical services, we are ready to help your whole family prepare for the day. Our perioperative surgery services refer to the time before, during and after surgery and we want to to make sure your child is prepared for the experience.
