Center for Surgical Outcomes Research (CSOR)
Led by Peter C. Minneci, MD, MHsc, and Katherine J. Deans, MD, The Center for Surgical Outcomes Research (CSOR) is housed in the Department of Pediatric Surgery and is designed to determine the best methods available to address all aspects of the care of pediatric surgical patients. A $1.6 million research grant from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) was recently obtained by investigators in the CSOR to compare non-operative antibiotic management of simple appendicitis with surgical appendectomy.

Center for Clinical and Translational Science
