The Division of Pediatric Surgery at Saint Louis University Health Sciences Center is based at the SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Patients from birth through age 18 are seen in consultation and cared for as inpatients. Problems ranging from elective outpatient surgery (e.g., inguinal hernia) to the most complicated surgical problems, requiring care in an intensive care unit, are managed by the attending surgeons on this service.
