Flushing Hospital Adds Pediatric Surgery to its List of Services

When your child needs an operation, it’s important that they receive the very best care available, and that means finding a hospital with surgeons who specialize in operating on children. Flushing Hospital Medical Center is now proud to announce the addition of its Pediatric Surgical Service.

Led by Dr. Steven Stylianos, this team of seven, highly-trained, Board-Certified pediatric surgeons brings many years of experience to Flushing Hospital. Specially trained to work with children and understand their specific needs, the pediatric surgical team’s primary concern is diagnosing conditions that require surgical intervention in children and managing their preoperative, operative, and postoperative surgical issues. They also provide a wide variety of specialized procedures on fetuses, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

Using the latest technology and working in Flushing Hospital’s newly renovated and modernized operative suites, the pediatric surgical group provides the latest, most minimally invasive procedures on their patients. Performing most procedures either laparoscopically or thoracoscopically, Flushing Hospital’s pediatric surgical patients benefit by experiencing less pain, shorter recovery time, and fewer complications as a result of this specialized care.

The pediatric surgical group regularly treats patients in Flushing Hospital’s Ambulatory Care Center. They also perform in-patient consultation services and evaluate patients in the Emergency Department.
