 Research

We firmly believe that productive research programs enrich clinical practice as well as enhance our educational goals. Our faculty members, including several designated surgeon-scientists, are engaged in a wide range of innovative research. We are especially dedicated to multidisciplinary research, and the proximity of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to the Feinberg campus provides the opportunity for enhanced collaboration with our medical school colleagues.

More information related to pediatric research is available via the Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute website.

 Patient Care

Faculty of the Division of Pediatric Surgery are attending physicians at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The division comprises the pediatric subspecialties of cardiovascular-thoracic surgery, general surgery, plastic surgery and transplant surgery. In addition to these subspecialties, physicians in the division also oversee the pediatric programs for minimally-invasive surgery, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation and pediatric trauma and burn care.
