Many pediatric urologists practice in large institutions involved in teaching doctors, and many patients seek care in such settings. We respect that decision. Without detracting from the very important mission of large teaching institutions, our mission is different. We provide families an alternative to care in such settings. If your child needs surgery, the procedure will be done by one of the best-trained pediatric urologists in the United States, not a trainee. Your child’s anesthesia will be provided by fully-credentialed anesthesiologists who practice anesthesia daily and who are extremely skilled at regional anesthetic techniques for post-operative pain control in children. If your child is hospitalized after surgery, he or she will be admitted to a private room on a dedicated pediatric ward staffed by a stable group of very experienced nurses who have worked extensively with Dr. Schaeffer. We are committed to patient privacy, and we invite you to review our privacy policies outlined in this website. We welcome feedback about the care we provide.
