Will be having surgery to remove a part of your intestine or your gallbladder (aka laparoscopic or robot assisted intestinal anastomoses or laparoscopic cholecystectomy).
This study enrolls children who are having an intracranial or spinal fusion procedure. The purpose of this study is to learn about the DNA of children who develop an infection after surgery. The results of this study may help us learn how to better control infections in children after surgery in the future. Read More

We are looking for people who have had a foot wound related to vascular disease AND healthy volunteers for this study. This study is being conducted to see how well a non-invasive imaging technique allows researchers to see blood inside the human body. The technique combines light and sound to create an image. We would like to see how well this imaging technique can show the veins in the foot in 3D. Read More
