Our experienced and caring board certified surgeons at Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group Pediatric Surgery have provided specialized surgical care for children, from infants to teenagers, since 1971. Serving Columbia, Lexington and the greater Midlands of South Carolina, we are the only pediatric surgery practice of our kind in the region. Our pediatric surgeons complete an additional rigorous surgical training program and certification that specifically addresses the unique surgical needs of infants and children.

In addition to specialized clinical expertise, our staff has the experience to calm the fears of children who must undergo surgery. With a gentle touch and calm demeanor, we’re here to make surgery the best possible experience for patients and parents.
