Dr. Thomas H Renard 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.

We saw Dr Renard on the recommendation of our pediatrician. We got an appointment easily but once we got to see him I was dismayed about how cold and uncaring he was. Our GI doctor told us she was 99% sure my daughter would need surgery. He ordered lots of tests and procedures and then gave us no answers. My daughter still has the same problem. All he wants us to do is see the GI doctor again. Her opinion remains the same, he just doesnt have one. We are searching for a new surgeon now.
Dr Renard helped my son become pain free! After several months trying to figure out what was going on w/ my son - We were refered to Dr Renard - he looked at all the medical files we had - and scheduled surgery to remove my sons Appendix that Thursday - We have just gotten over that 6 weeks post op - and My son is back to normal. Thanks to Dr Renard.
We were referred to Dr Renard by my sons pediatrician. He had an abscess that needed to be drain, a very simple procedure, but since it was so infected he would need general anesthesia. At his office appointment Dr Renard was very impatient with my son that was already in a lot of pain and barely looked at him and said he needed surgery next day. The only explanation and rude comment was he might need it later anyway. I did it because that was what my sons pediatrician recommended as well.The day of the surgery at this very expensive facility we had to wait from 9:45 to 12:45 in the waiting room. I realized that he makes all the patients come early just in case he can save time. After the sugery that lasted less than 10 minutes was done he was very rude. He told me to treat my sons wound in the wrong way, at least his nurse and the anesthesiologist that I saw after begged me not to follow his instructions. When I asked about the scar that this procedure would leave he said well, he will not be able to be a hip model. This is unacceptable, he does not care for the patient or family, he is just a bad doctor.
My 10 week old son needed surgery to repair an umbilical hernia. We called on a Thursday and were able to see Dr. Renard on the next Monday. The staff in the office was very nice, and we only waited about 5 minutes in the lobby. The nurses that took our vitals were very nice and talked to the baby. We only waited about 3 minutes until Dr. Renard came to the exam room. He was gentle with our son and insisted on the surgery. We had it scheduled for the following week.Dr. Renard explained the procedure to us and assured us that he would take excellent care of our boy. After the surgery - he came out to talk to us and visited us on the recovery floor. He was present at our discharge and made us feel at ease.Our son has a new belly button and it's all thanks to Dr. Renard!! I can't praise him enough!
