The Department of Surgery at Texas Children's Hospital represents a dedicated team of pediatric-focused surgeons from nine surgical divisions: Congenital Heart Surgery, Dental, Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Otolaryngology, Pediatric General Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Urology. In conjunction with our partners in Anesthesiology, Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, and Transplant Services, we have 80 full-time surgeons who are full-time Baylor College of Medicine faculty and more than 600 Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine employees focused on ensuring children get the care they need.

Our team's tireless efforts are evident in our more than 25,300 operating room cases and over 135,000 outpatient visits completed in 2014, our external research funding, and our countless articles and presentations given nationally and internationally each year.

We are dedicated to meeting our mission with five community health centers and two Texas Children's Hospital locations. Additionally, we take great pride in caring for children at other hospitals in the Houston area and from all 50 states and nearly 60 countries around the globe.
