The Pediatric Esophageal and Thoracic Surgery Program at Children's National Hospital streamlines the care of your child with diseases and disorders of the lungs, mediastinum and esophagus by using the latest diagnostic, surgical and medical techniques based on best-practices. In an effort to offer your child quicker and more precise diagnoses, more insightful and effective surgical treatments and, most importantly, more promising outcomes. Our program enhances each family’s journey and improves your child's care.

Our team of renowned surgeons offer innovative and minimally invasive surgical treatments, as well as, traditional surgical procedures. In addition, we are committed to providing the highest standard of care with the utmost compassion delivering a treatment plan tailored to the child’s needs.

Thoracic surgery includes surgery on the chest wall and organs contained within the thoracic, or chest cavity. Surgeries of the foregut, both conventional and minimally invasive, address conditions of the esophagus, stomach and proximal small intestine. Gastric surgery addresses conditions of the stomach and duodenum.
