Specialties

Dr. Daniel P Doody has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Eighteen years ago, Dr. Doody performed surgery on my one week old son for an anular pancreas. Yesterday, I attended my son's induction into the academic honors society at U or M for aerospace engineering. What else needs to be said?

Nicest guy

It's true what they say about Dr. Doody. Extremely friendly guy. Doesn't have a God complex like some surgeons do. Answered most of my questions in a timely manner and very professionally. Unfortunately I was unable to get the operation I wanted (the Nuss procedure) probably because the severity of my defect wasn't high enough for the correction but I'd say Dr. Doody is your best bet for a pediatric surgeon.

Forever in debt to this great man!

Dr. Doody is THE best pediatric surgeon that exists! When my son was only 7 years old he was diagnosed with a massive abdominal tumor. The prospects were bleak. Marc is now 22 with not a trace of his ordeal. We are forever in debt to this wonderful man!
