Specialties

Dr. Michael J Leinwand 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.

Amazing Doctor and very personable

Dr. Lienwand performed my sons first surgery the day after he was born. He went out of his way to explain the procedure to me in a way that I could understand and was so caring.The second surgery that he performed on my son, he had to remove his right lung. The thought of the extent of this type of surgery was terrifying. Dr. Lienwand put me and my family at ease and the surgery was flawless due to his skill and the latest technology he was able to utilize. My son was there overnight and only has a 1" scar. He is an amazing Doctor and I would always recommend him to anyone that is facing a potential surgery.To him I say Thank you!!!

Phenomenal surgeon

Highly skilled surgeon. My daughter has had two operations with Dr. Leinwand, the last a very involved liver biopsy. The intricate part of a liver biopsy is all the blood vessels in the liver and the extensive bleeding that can occur. Dr. Leinwand did a fantastic job and stop the bleeding and virtually no scaring at all for my daughter. I was amazed. And to top it all off not only is Dr. Leinwand a very gifted surgeon he is one of the best all around person you can know. He is truly cares about the kids and it shows.
