Doctor Category: Surgery - Pediatric
Dr. Anne C. Fischer is board-certified in general surgery and pediatric surgery. She has practiced medicine for 20 years and specializes in minimally invasive pediatric general
and thoracic surgery for newborns, infants, toddlers, and children.
She’s delighted to be working at the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center because of the breadth of specialists there and the focus on pulling a team together. “Pediacentric, multidisciplinary programs ensure that physicians are aware of the latest innovations and can use them,” she says. “Children don’t always get the financial commitment that’s needed to do that. I’m passionate about quality care, and there is a joy to taking care of children and bringing them to a state-of-the-art medical center.”
Both of Fischer’s parents were physicians, and she decided on pediatric surgery because it has the potential to make a difference over someone’s entire life. “Some look upon it as
very painful whereas I think there are so many innovations that have improved the care of children,” she says. “There have been tremendous gains in pediatric oncology.”
