Children's Central Scheduling

Dr. Craig's highest priority is to provide the best available general and thoracic surgical care for the children of Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest. He takes a thoughtful approach, striving to listen intently and to fully understand the unique experience of each child and family. By taking this approach, he hopes to communicate clearly and ensure that the children and their families understand why an operation might be needed. Dr. Craig especially enjoys collaborating with other doctors and specialists and considers it a privilege to be able to work together to effectively manage the complex medical and surgical problems in children that are cared for at Children's Wisconsin.

Dr. Craig's training included the full breadth of general and pediatric surgery: the surgical care of cancer in children including neuroblastoma, Wilms' tumor, rhabdomyosarcoma, hepatoblastoma, osteosarcoma and thyroid cancer; the comprehensive management of fetal, newborn, and infant surgical problems such as diaphragmatic hernia, congenital lung cysts, esophageal atresia, abdominal wall defects, anorectal malformations, intestinal obstructions, biliary cysts and atresia, and lymphovascular malformations; and emergency surgical care including traumatic injuries of all severity. He favors minimally invasive approaches to operations whenever safe and feasible.
