A child's small size, developing body and difficulty in communicating their condition requires very special care. At UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital we use unique knowledge and experience when treating children with congenital and acquired conditions.

Our surgeons are internationally recognized leaders in surgical cancer, minimally invasive surgery and birth defects.

We have pioneered groundbreaking work in treating severe prenatal birth defects, developing procedures that have resulted in healthy newborns and mothers.
