With Purpose and Insight

Our goal is to deliver a quality, individualized approach to pediatric surgical care for Arizona's children.  Surgery can be a scary experience for families; each member of our staff will do their best to make that experience as positive as possible.  We hope this website helps to answer questions and provides a source of information for families with children having surgery. For all offices, please call 602-254-5561 for more information.

Accessible and Available

Pediatric Surgeons of Phoenix has five clinic locations in Arizona to serve our patients and their families: Central Phoenix, Scottsdale-Shea, Southwest Valley, East Valley, and Yuma.

Our surgeons perform outpatient surgeries at Phoenix Children's Surgery Center, St Joseph's Surgicenter, Piper Surgery Center in Scottsdale, and Phoenix Children's East Valley Surgery Center.

Experienced Professionals

Sub-specialization in pediatric surgery provides concentrated training and experience in treating children. This means care that has been distinctly designed for the young patient and can sometimes lower the chance of complications in children. We are the largest pediatric surgical practice in Arizona with 12 fellowship-trained pediatric surgeons. We provide 24/7 surgical care for young patients at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Scottsdale Healthcare-Shea, and St. Joseph's Hospital.
