Words From A Pediatric Surgeon

This is not general surgery in miniature. These are the tiny humans. These are children. They believe in magic, they play pretends there is fairy dust in their IV bags. They hope and they cross their fingers and they make wishes, and that makes them more resilient than adults. They recover faster, survive worse. They believe we pediatricians, we have miracles and magic. In pediatricians anything is possible. - Arizona Robbins
