Summary:
Thanks to its new Pediatric General Surgery Program, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center now offers children the minimally invasive, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures that have been available to adults for years. For example, 8-year-old Omar Fazli recently underwent a laparoscopic appendectomy. The procedure itself took only 30 minutes and he went home from the hospital the next day.

LOS ANGELES (November 30, 2000) -- When Susan Amiryar and Omar Fazli took their son, Yama Fazli, to Cedars- Sinai Medical Center’s Emergency Room in the middle of the night last September, they were facing one of the greatest fears of many parents – a sick child who was in pain and might need surgery. According to an ultrasound evaluation, Yama’s appendix was three times its normal size and ready to burst.
