Helping Kids Feel Whole
Kids mean the world to us. Nationally known for our pediatric surgery program, AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, is a world leader in minimally invasive surgery for children and adolescents. Thanks to ongoing advances in pediatric surgical procedures, your child can recover more quickly and experience fewer complications than with traditional surgery, as many procedures require just a few stitches to close.
Leading the Way in Pediatric Surgery
What to Expect
Regardless of the reason for your visit, we try to make your stay with us as stress-free and pleasant as possible, for both you and your child.
Thanks to ongoing advances in medicine, many pediatric surgeries can be performed on children through an opening no bigger than a dime, and in many cases even smaller.
