Additional Surgical Services
The following departments and programs provide surgical services to pediatric patients, but are not part of the Department of Surgery.
Pediatric Anesthesiology, part of the Department of Anesthesiology, provides sedation and general anesthesia to infants and children for surgical and diagnostic procedures. We also offer a pre-operative assessment clinic and acute pediatric pain service. The Outpatient clinic is located on floor 3 of Mott.
Surgeons from the University of Michigan Department of Dermatology's Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center use numerous laser systems to treat pediatric patients with vascular lesions (including port wine stains and hemangiomas), spider angiomas, cafe au lait macules and unwanted hair. Some treatments are performed without anesthesia in the CDLC while others, such as those for pediatric patients with extensive or facial lesions, are performed under anesthesia in C.S.Mott Children's Hospital operating rooms.
The Pediatric Neurosurgery Program, part of the U-M Department of Neurosurgery, provides care for infants through young adults with neurosurgical problems. We offer outpatient clinics and inpatient care at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. Faculty areas of interest include: congenital anomalies of the brain and spinal cord; tumors of the brain and spinal cord; hydrocephalus; myelomeningocele and spina bifida; craniofacial anomalies; vascular anomalies of the brain and spinal cord; medically refractory epilepsy; Chiari malformations; surgical therapy for spasticity; pediatric head and spinal cord injury; and tethered spinal cord.
The following specialty clinics are offered through the Pediatric Neurosurgery Program: Brain and Central Nervous System Tumor Clinic; Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic; Myelomeningocele Clinic; and Medically Refractory Epilepsy Clinic.
Orthopaedics is the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal system disorders. The University of Michigan’s five subspecialty-trained pediatric orthopaedists provide diagnosis and therapy consultations for children up to age 18. Our specialty areas include: scoliosis; fractures; bone and soft tissue tumors; congenital malformations; and caring for handicapped children with orthopaedic musculoskeletal conditions such as cerebral palsy and myelodysplasia.
We have outpatient clinics at two locations - the second floor of the Taubman Center (Ann Arbor) and the Brighton Health Center. Scoliosis and chest wall deformities are evaluated by a team of U-M specialists at a multidisciplinary clinic in the Taubman Center and surgeries are performed at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology evaluates and treats disorders of the head and neck in children. Our subspecialty-trained pediatric otolaryngologists provide complete medical and surgical care for common procedures as well as rare conditions. Children with underlying and often complex health problems are cared for by multidisciplinary teams of University of Michigan specialists.
The outpatient clinic is located on the second floor of the Taubman Center. Surgeries are performed at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. We also see outpatient pediatric patients and perform surgeries at the Livonia Center for Specialty Care.
The University of Michigan’s pediatric urology team includes board certified urologists who have completed additional training in the evaluation and treatment of children with a variety of conditions related to their genitourinary functions, including newborns diagnosed as having a swollen kidney (antenatal hydronephrosis) as fetuses and teenagers with varicose veins in the scrotum (varicoceles).
We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and work closely with our colleagues in pediatric anesthesiology, nephrology, oncology, radiology and other specialties.
We see patients during regularly scheduled weekly clinics at three locations - the Taubman Center in Ann Arbor and our Brighton and Livonia Health Centers. In addition, we hold special clinics at various times and in various locations state-wide.
