Take a Mercy Kids surgery tour

Dr. Spilde's Story

Childhood sometimes takes unexpected turns. And occasionally, surgery is the solution. That can leave little patients – and parents – feeling a bit anxious.

Fortunately with Mercy Clinic Pediatric Surgery in Springfield, MO, families have two specially trained pediatric surgeons dedicated to treating kids. Doctors Spilde and Keckler offer surgical expertise for minor and major conditions, from infancy through age 17 years. 

Pediatric surgeries performed include:

  • Chest and esophagus surgery
  • Endoscopy
  • Hernia repair
  • Circumcisions
  • Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery
  • Repair for birth defects
  • And more

Our staff and pediatric surgeons work with your child’s doctor to provide coordinated care. And most importantly, they spend time with you and your child – before surgery and after – to assure the entire process goes as smoothly as possible.

As Mercy Clinic physicians, our pediatric surgeons belong to a health care team that’s thousands strong, linking you to experts everywhere you find Mercy. Plus, you can stay connected to your child’s Mercy Clinic doctor through MyMercy, our free online health management tool that lets you request appointments, see test results, and more – anytime, anywhere.
