Carolinas HealthCare System has selected a staff surgeon at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital to become its chief of pediatric surgery.

Dr. Anthony Stallion will work throughout the system, including Levine Children’s Hospital and Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital.

“Dr. Stallion is a leader in pediatric surgery and will be a tremendous resource for residents and other staff,” Dr. Leonard Feld, the chair of pediatrics for Carolinas HealthCare System’s Carolinas Medical Center and the chief medical officer for Levine Children’s Hospital, said in a news release. “His clinical expertise and ability to develop programs will help us expand clinical services in the Charlotte-metro area and throughout the region.”

Stallion spent the past 12 years as a staff surgeon at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and was an associate professor of surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. He was named to the 2013 National Best Doctors in America list.

Carolinas HealthCare System operates the region’s only Level-1 trauma center, and Stallion will contribute to the trauma center’s continued growth. “Through Carolinas HealthCare System there is a tremendous amount of potential for pediatric surgical services throughout the region,” Stallion said in a news release.

Stallion earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1987 before serving a general surgical residency at the University of Cincinnati Hospital. He completed pediatric surgery fellowships at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati and Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit.
