Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pillai "We spend a lot of time with the parents going over the procedures, talking about alternative treatments, postoperative management for these kids, and what to expect after surgery for these kids. We're the last of the true general surgeons. So we'll operate on the chest, in the abdomen, on the extremities, blood vessels - so we do everything. I'm lucky enough that I'm doing exactly what I want. I have a great time with the kids. I get to play with all the new toys. I know all the new cartoons. I keep up with all that stuff. So it's actually a lot of fun."

Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Pillai conducted surgery on my son when he was 2 days old and then 6 months old. He has great best side manners, is thorough, explains procedures in simple terms, makes himself accessible for any calls/questions.
