Dr. Charles E Coln Jr has the following 3 specialties
- Surgical Critical Care
- Pediatric Surgery
A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

I WOULD AND HAVE RECOMMENDED HIM TO PEOPLE. HE HAS HELPED ME GAIN BACK MY LIFE. BEFORE HAVING SURGERY I WAS ALWAYS TIRED AND NEVER HAD ENOUGH ENERGY TO DO ANYTHING BECAUSE I GOT WINDED SO EASILY. I UNDER WENT 4 SURGERIES NOT INCLUDING THE FIRST ON I WENT THOUGH AT THE AGE OF 6 DONE BY A DIFFERENT DOCTOR (MY CASE WAS BAD) AND HE NEVER GAVE ME FALSE HOPE. HE TOLD ME WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS BEST FOR ME AND THEN GAVE ME THE CHOICE ON THE DIRECTION WE WOULD TAKE. AFTER SURGERY HE WAS ALWAYS PERSONALLY CHECKING ON ME TO MAKE SURE I WAS GETTING THE CARE I NEEDED. HIS OFFICE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND CARING (THEIR LIKE FAMILY) AND MY VISITS NEVER TOOK LONG. AND IF HE WANTED TESTING DONE HE TRIED TO GET IT ALL DONE IN THE SAME DAY SO I DID NOT HAVE TO MAKE SO MANY TRIPS. ALL IN ALL THIS MAN IS STELLAR AT WHAT HE DOES.
Dr. Coln was excellent. We were referred to him by our pediatrician after finding out that our nine-year-old son had an inguinal hernia. Even though his first open appointment was over a week away, the phone nurse got us in the same day because they didn't want our son to be in pain. When we arrived at the office, we were seen right away. Dr. Coln was kind, knowledgeable, and very patient in answering all of our questions. Surgery was scheduled three days later. That moring, Dr. Coln came to our son's room, explained everything that would happened, answered any other questions we had, and then asked if we wanted him to pray for our son before operating. This really touched us! We were grateful to have a doctor who cared so much about his patient. The surgery went very well and Dr. Coln gave us all the details afterward. Our son had almost no pain following the operation and is doing great.
Our 14 yr old son had to have emergency surgery on a Friday night. Dr. Coln was wonderful. He explained everything to us and to our son, he never talked over him. He has a wonderful bedside manner and he prayed with us before surgery. Its a parents worst nightmare when a child has to go into surgery, and he was a blessing to have in our corner. He made the experience so much easier to handle.
