Advanced Minimally Invasive Pediatric Surgery

Dr. Almond performs minimally invasive surgery in children, that is he performs operations through very small incisions that result in less surgical trauma, less pain and shorter recovery for children after surgery. Driscoll Children’s Hospital has the latest endoscopic technology and micro instrumentation that enables Dr. Almond to apply his endoscopic surgical skills required for this special operative technique.
