Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute

Doctors + Care Team

The doctors in the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute and the Division of Trauma Surgery work closely with physicians across the hospital. By working in multidisciplinary teams, we are able to provide your child with the best and most complete care. We also work side-by-side with the Child Protective Team and Child Life Services to ensure that your child is safe and able to cope with the stress of having an injury.
