Specialties

Dr. Gudrun Aspelund 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.

Excellent Surgeon

Excellent surgeon and she's a mother herself so she understands parental anxiety and answered every question I had without making me feel like I was wasting her time. My son had surgery and she was awesome. She and her staff were amazing.

Amazing Doctor!

God bless her! She traveled from New York City to Westchester County in the middle of the night to operate on my son. She was paged by the Hospital with a possible appendix rupture and she showed up within 1 1/2 hours. Confirmed the rupture and went into surgery immediately. Surgery began around 11 PM and took longer than expected because of the rupture and what she had to clean up inside of him. I have to say, Dr. Aspelund took wonderful care of my child and did a great job with the surgery. She's gentle and truly deeply cares about her patients! Thank you Dr. Aspelund, I will you success and best wishes always!
