Job Description for Pediatric Surgeon

A pediatric surgeon is a person with the experience and qualifications to treat children, usually focusing on the most severe cases requiring surgery from the neck to the pelvic region. Surgery for children is quite different from surgery for adults, and special training is required. These surgeons work in hospitals, treating children from newborns to late adolescence. Pediatric surgeons work to repair defects, diagnose and repair tumors, and perform transplants. A typical work environment for them is a medical facility, usually within a children's or emergency hospital, but they can work within university facilities as well. The types of industries that employ them are mainly in large scale medical industries, but researchers and community hospitals employ them also.
