Specialties

Dr. David M Lawlor has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • 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.

Area's best pediatric surgeon

Our two-year-old had a three-hour exploratory surgery with Dr. Lawlor, and we truly felt that our son was in excellent hands. The doctor had a great bedside manner and answered questions thoroughly. If you meet with him, you will quickly realize that he is extremely skilled, experienced and caring. I would recommend him to anyone for a pediatric surgery.
