Specialties

Dr. James R Upp Jr has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • 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.

appendectomy surgery

Dr. Upp is thorough, patient and knowledgeable. My grandson went in for an emergency appendectomy at OLOL and Dr. Upp explained everything to expect from start to finish. My grandson is doing fine now. I would recommend Dr. Upp for any pediatric surgery.

DO NOT RISK YOUR CHILD'S LIFE!!

He did a terrible job on my daughter's surgery- leaving her with a feeding tube for 7 years. After surgery- he would not admit his mistakes & left my daughter seizing in ICU. Another physician ended up saving my child's life & told me that was the WORST, most botched up surgery he had ever seen. The other surgeons in this group are amazing- but DON'T see UPP. He is even been BANNED from Woman's Hospital because of his attitude & poor performance. That, alone, speaks VOLUMES right there.
