If your pediatrician suggests that you take your child to be evaluated by a pediatric surgeon, you can be sure that Dr. Avila will offer you all the possible treatments, with a comprehensive training and extensive experience in the treatment of surgical pathologies in the pediatric age
The surgical problems that pediatric surgeons treat are often very different from those treated by general or adult surgeons. A specific training in pediatric surgery is fundamental to be able to face them.
Pediatric surgeons care for children from the period of newborn to adolescence. The specialization of adult surgeons usually focuses on a particular organ or region of the body, while pediatric surgery includes the digestive, thoracic, urogenital, neonatal, plastic and oncological areas, focusing on the congenital or acquired pathology of the child considering the stage of the development in which it is.
