Pediatric Outpatient Specialists


Our team of pediatric specialists has a long history of service to the children and families of Miami. They have worked alongside our doctors in the Miami Children’s Health System, bringing that same patient focus to the Surgery Center. Team members live in Miami and surrounding areas, and are neighbors and friends to the families they serve. They extend a welcoming hand to visitors from afar who entrust their children to our care. Many are native Spanish-speakers.

Nurses and clinical technicians are experienced in pediatric ambulatory surgery and have trained specially to assist our physicians. Our business specialists handle the details and paperwork to help you prepare and focus on your child’s recovery.
