Real or imagined, tummy aches are almost a rite of passage for children. But if your child is holding her side and has trouble walking without pain, it may be time to go to the ER. In this Children's Channel video, John Crow, MD, the chair of surgery department at Akron Children's, discusses the diagnosis and treatment of appendicitis.
While we are ranked among the best children's hospitals in the country, it's our compassionate approach to treatment that makes us truly exceptional.
Through a combination of revolutionary treatments and extraordinary patient experiences, our care does more than heal. It brings the entire family
together for emotional support and understanding across multiple locations to reach you in the community where you live.
