All These Procedures Are Done With Good Quality And Excellent Outcomes
SERVICES & PROCEDURES:
Pediatric Surgery is one of the super specialty departments of the department of Pediatrics. It has steadily progressed and grown into a thriving segment of advanced pediatric surgical specialty with systematic ethical services being rendered on areas like.
Advanced minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy/ thoracoscopy)
Pediatric surgical oncology
Pediatric gastro intestinal (GI) surgery
Pediatric emergency-training services
The team of qualified and experienced Pediatric surgeons and Pediatric and Neonatal intensivists with the state-of-the-art equipment deliver advanced surgical work of international standard.
Children with urological problems need to be managed by pediatric experts who routinely see and treat these problems.
We offer counselling in conjunction with the obstetricians to parents of unborn children with abnormal pregnancy scans. Parents are able to ask questions, allay their anxiety and make informed decisions.
Laparoscopy (Keyhole Surgery)
With the current emphasis on a minimally invasive millennium, there has been a changing trend with laparoscopy getting increasing importance. This helps the children experience less pain, go home earlier and recover faster.
Currently, the department offers minimally invasive surgery related to the lungs, appendix, stomach, kidneys, internal reproductive organs, developmental malformations of the rectum and anus (namely gastrooesophageal reflux, anorectal malformations, intersex disorder, nonfunctioning kidneys, undescended testis, appendicitis, varicoceles and thoracic lesions).
This is an ever expanding field. With the emergence of supporting evidence from international literature, more and more operations will be offered under this category.
Day Care Surgery
This has revolutionised the surgical health care of children in need of minor operations. They are admitted, operated and discharged all in one day without any adverse effect on the outcome. Clearly there is less trauma of hospitalisation and better utilisation of resources with earlier appointments for operations. The logistics can be discussed during the clinic visit with the surgeon.
Our paediatric oncology team consists of dedicated oncologists, surgeons and nursing staff. Patients get treated in a separate oncology ward with isolation rooms if necessary.
The surgeon's role is to provide a biopsy, insert central lines for chemotherapy and resect the tumours as feasible.
The tumours commonly operated on are Wilms tumour, Neuroblastoma and Hepatoblastoma
Paediatric organ (liver and kidney) transplantation has developed as a specialised treatment for children suffering from irreversible organ failure.
Paediatric kidney transplants are also performed by the same team of consultants.
We have a regular referral base from the neighbouring countries for the second opinion on complex paediatric surgical problems and re-operations for surgical complications in children.
