The Yale Medicine Pediatric Trauma Program is fortunate to have some of the most talented and innovative pediatric surgeons in the country. Our team of pediatric surgeons and advanced practice nurses (APRN) works together to address your child’s needs in treating injuries caused by trauma. We collaborate with primary care providers and other pediatric and medical specialists to optimize your child’s health and provide you with a comprehensive network for all of your child’s follow-up care, if necessary.
Pediatric surgeons dedicate their practice to treating children, ranging from the neonatal stage through late adolescence. The medical needs of a child differ from those of an adult, requiring pediatric surgeons to have additional education and advanced training. All of our team members have extensive experience in working with children and take extra measures to ensure that your child receives top-level care and that he or she feels safe and comfortable.
