Meeting the Team

Bay Area Pediatric Surgeons is dedicated to the care of children. We provide expert surgical care of fetuses, infants, children and adolescents with congenital and acquired conditions.

Pediatric Surgeons

Our surgeons are internationally recognized leaders in the field of pediatric surgical oncology, minimally invasive surgery and birth defects. Our team of surgeons work in conjunction with a full spectrum of pediatric subspecialists to provide comprehensive care to children.

These physicians will speak with you at length about your child's condition, the procedure, risks, possible benefits, and possible complications of fetal surgery. They will perform your surgery and manage your postoperative care together with other members of our pediatric surgery team.

Our surgical faculty bios can be found on the Faculty page

Our Team of Nurses

The Pediatric Surgery nurse coordinators are integral to your experience at UCSF. They will coordinate your care, beginning with communication with your health care provider. They will coordinate your various appointments with laboratory testing and arrange consultations with medical team members. You should feel free to contact our coordinators at any time before surgery or after you leave if you have any concerns.

Our OR nurses assist the surgeons in the operating room and also may be available to you before surgery to answer any questions you have about the procedure itself. You will see them briefly when you arrive in the operating room the day of the surgery.
