Specialties

Dr. Nitsana A Spigland 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.

Incomplete Surgery!

My 3 month old son needed to have a perianal abscess surgically drained. His pediatrician expressed concern that he may have a fistula which would have caused the abscess. Dr. Spigland agreed to drain the abscess, look for the fistula and remove it if present. Dr. Spigland drained the abscess and confirmed there was no fistula. Approximately 2 weeks later, the perianal abscess returned in the same exact location as the previous one. I took my son to another hospital where the surgeon removed the fistula that was overlooked and caused another painful perinanal abscess, which resulted in my 3 month old son to need another surgery in the same location as the first 2 weeks later. UNACCEPTABLE!

The best Pediatric GI surgeon

Dr. Spigland is nothing short of a miracle doctor. She has tremendous knowledge and is incredibly dedicated and giving to her patients. She saved our baby's life more than once and gave us hope when other doctors told us there was none. Our baby is now a thriving, happy, healthy one year old and we cannot thank Dr. Spigland enough.
