Obesity is recognized as chronic disease that affects over 10% of youth in Canada.
The Department of Psychology is thoroughly integrated into every facet of care for chronically ill children and their families and committed to the highest standard of care.
Our mission is to take care of children up to age 18 who have any orthopedic injury or condition.
Patients are at the heart of our mission. The Pediatric General Surgery team, made up of surgeons, nurses and other staff members, understands that surgery can be stressful for a child and the family. We respect every patient’s needs and work together to ensure the child’s well-being.
The Acute Pain Service (APS) follows hospitalized children for acute pain episodes related to an injury, an operation and/or pain from an illness.
