Midwest Pediatric Surgery Consortium

Amy Lawrence, M.D., will be the fellow as of July 1, 2018.  Amy is a general surgery resident at the University of Rochester in New York.  She is currently a research fellow at Nationwide Children’s Hospital under the mentorship of Drs. Deans and Minneci. Prior to studying medicine, she was the director of a non-profit organization for impoverished indigenous children in Guatemala and did research in maternal-fetal medicine. Her current research dossier focuses on the surgical care of adolescent females. Specifically she is currently studying methods for reducing unnecessary oophorectomies in pediatric patients with ovarian masses; understanding disparities in the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal pain in adolescent girls at children’s hospitals compared to hospitals that primarily treat adults; and evaluating racial and gender- based disparities in opioid prescribing following surgery.
