Pediatric Surgery

Innovators in Pediatric Surgery

While UNC continues to perform the largest number of pediatric surgeries in the state of North Carolina, our team of pediatric surgeons also leads the state in robotic-assisted surgeries. Having performed more than 55 robotic-assisted surgeries, our Pediatric Robotic Team treats a variety of diseases and conditions in children with a minimally invasive tool know as the da Vinci® Surgical System. In fact UNC is the only hospital in the state performing robotic-assisted surgery on pediatric patients.
