The Pediatric Surgery service at OHSU is a collaborative team of physicians and advanced-practice providers concerned with discovering and evaluating techniques of Pediatric Surgical care. The Division of Pediatric Surgery directs a busy inpatient and outpatient clinical service both at Doernbecher Children\u2019s Hospital at OHSU and Randall Children\u2019s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel.
Our collaborative service utilizes not only the expertise of our OHSU staff but also incorporates the pediatric surgeons of the Legacy and Kaiser systems. Given the collective training experiences from such prestigious children\u2019s hospitals located in Toronto, Montreal, Cincinnati, Columbus, Houston, and Indianapolis, we are able to offer the medical students, residents, and fellows of OHSU a complete and diverse educational experience.
