Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth Pohlson 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.

  • General Surgery

    A surgical specialist is a physician who has additional training in a specific area of surgery.
    The American Board of Medical Specialties acknowledges the following surgical specialties: general surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, colon and rectal surgery, obstetrics and gynecological surgery, neurological surgery, ophthalmic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngological surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery, and vascular surgery.
    Some procedures are performed by more than one type of specialist. Also, some surgeons may choose to specialize in specific procedures within their specialty area. For example, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon may specialize in performing rhinoplasty procedures.

Dr Pohlson is the epitome of what a good surgeon/doctor should be. She is caring, nurturing, empathetic and up-to-date on her medical knowledge of possible diagnoses and treatment. Her communication is direct, and thus you are never left with any uncertainties regarding her thoughts on your child's situation. I would highly recommend her to any family whose child must go through surgery.

Did not slow down to diagnose my son correctly

Needs more education in anal rectal malformations. My son went through 8 months of anal dilations that did not need to be performed. He ultimately ended up needing surgery. If this would have been done at birth it would of saved our family from a lot of torture.
