Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Slidell "I specialize in caring for children. This is because surgery for children is very different from surgery for adults. Treatments will be planned with each child's growth and development in mind. I work with families to address each child's physical and emotional concerns. I am committed to taking all of the time necessary to answer every question. I will discuss your child's condition and help you learn about it. I will explain your options, even the ones that may not require surgery when appropriate. I operate in state of the art facilities equipped with the latest technology that allow me to perform advanced minimally invasive surgery. This approach speeds recovery, reduces pain, and minimizes scarring."

Dr Slidell was kind and friendly taking time to sit down and explain my options. We decided on surgical intervention for my 22 month old son. Dr. Slidell did an inguinal hernia repair.
