About Us

The Division of Pediatric Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine is one of the largest and most experienced pediatric surgical programs in the world and is led by Allen L. Milewicz, associate professor and chief.

Our pediatric surgery oncology program is an integral part of Texas Children’s Cancer Center, which is ranked third in the nation for pediatric cancer by U.S. News and World Report. Our other top programs include adolescent bariatric surgery, the fetal surgery service, and pediatric trauma service.

The Pediatric Surgery Residency Program, directed by Dr. Mark V. Mazziotti, is also one of the top in the nation, accepting one applicant per year. Over the course of two years, residents are exposed to a broad array of surgical cases and work closely with residents in pediatric medicine in the care of sick children.

Our groundbreaking and life-saving research initiatives are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), private foundations, Texas Children’s and Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Sundeep Keswani, surgical director of Basic Science Research at Texas Children’s, has recently established the division’s core laboratory, which functions as a basic science and translational research center for faculty investigators.
