Care Philosophy
Dr. Erickson's philosophy is to care for all children as if they were her own. Central to this is a focus on clear communication with families about the indications for any surgery, as well as details about the procedure and expected recovery. She offers an operation only when indicated by symptoms or disease, and minimizes imaging and testing when a clinical exam will suffice. “I feel very lucky to be able to have a positive impact on the lives of so many children by providing excellent surgical care in the setting of kindness and humanity.”
