Interim Senior Vice President: Anthony D. Sandler, MD
Executive Director: David Ashman

The Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care at Children’s National Medical Center provides the highest level of care to infants, children and adolescents needing surgery.

Children’s also guarantees a pediatric-trained anesthesiologist 24 hours a day, a unique but important service. Frequently, surgeons can perform minimally invasive operations on even the smallest patients, some weighing only five or six pounds.

Many surgeries can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can go home the same day. Outpatient surgeries can be performed at the Montgomery County Outpatient Center.

Children’s offers a full range of pediatric surgical specialties, including:
