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.
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.
The mission of The Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) Pediatric Consultation Centre (PCC) is to provide a consultative service to family physicians and MCH pediatricians who want opinions regarding a wide range of pediatric problems. These problems may include chronic headaches, developmental issues, language delays, recurrent abdominal pain, failure to thrive, gastroesophageal reflux, obesity, school and behavioural problems or any pediatric problem for which a physician wants a second opinion or more intensive investigation.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital Spina Bifida Service brings together specialists from several services at the hospital to provide care to children who have shunts (a tube which drains fluid from around the brain), as well as children with varying degrees of motor and sensory deficits, and children with neurogenic bladder and bowel (a condition which affects the spinal cord nerves that control bladder and bowel function).
