Pediatric Surgery


pediattrics at Banner Thunderbird Medical CenterThe Banner Thunderbird Children’s Center provides a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient pediatric surgical services.

We offer the latest minimally invasive technology and our board-certified pediatric surgeons use these techniques whenever possible to speed healing, shorten hospital stays and reduce pain and discomfort.

Our pediatric surgeons are the backbone of the surgical unit. This team is led by Joseph S. Janik, MD.

Each of our surgeons is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is affiliated with the American Pediatric Surgical Association and the American College of Surgeons. They are experienced in all forms of pediatric surgery, including neonatal, head and neck, abdominal and thoracic. They provide services to the NICU, pediatric intensive care unit, the emergency room and the various inpatient pediatric floors.

Our pediatric surgeons work closely with multiple pediatric subspecialties.

We take great care to ensure our pediatric patients feel safe and secure and that we minimize the impact of being in the hospital. Our surgical areas are decorated in child and family friendly themes to make the environment less intimidating to children. Our Child Life Specialists provide tours, play and education and are specifically trained on the effects of hospitalization on children and families. To schedule a before surgery class and/or tour, call 602-865-2526.
