Ask us about getting started!

Pediatric Surgical Associates was founded in 1972 by renowned pediatric surgeon and international authority on conjoined twin separation, Dr. Theodore Votteler. Since that time, the pediatric surgeons at Pediatric Surgical Associates have helped thousands of children in Dallas and the surrounding communities.

Our surgeons continue to honor the legacies of Dr. Votteler and recently retired former Medical Director Dr. Darrell Hermann by remaining on the cutting edge of pediatric surgical procedures ranging from common hernia surgery to rare surgical procedures like the complex separation of conjoined twins, minimally-invasive surgeries, or the new Bascom procedure for pilonidal cysts.

Our pediatric surgery services also include, but are not limited to abdominal and abdominal wall surgery, thoracic surgery (chest and chest wall), genitourinary surgery, head and neck surgery, skin and soft tissue surgery, laparoscopic surgery (minimally invasive), birth defects and prenatal counseling.

With over 100 years of combined experience, we offer experience you, as a parent, can trust.  Our surgeons and staff are committed to the safety and well-being of the children entrusted to our care.
