Pediatric Surgery evolved as a separate super specialty in children with surgical problems & better understanding of disease & metabolic changes. The department deals with the special surgical problems in children. It cares for neonates, infants, children & adolescents & also helps to counsel parents expecting a baby who may have been diagnosed before birth with a surgical problem. Pediatric surgeons are experienced in caring for the wide variety of problems in children like serious congenital anomalies, gastro-intestinal, urological or cancer related problems.
Pediatric surgery deals with comprehensive surgical care of children, from newborns to 18 year olds. Children differ from adults in their structure, physical requirements, the kinds of illnesses they suffer from, and in the way they need to be treated, especially surgically. Children aren’t, and therefore should not be treated like mini-adults. At the Kulwanti Depth of Paediatrics, we recognize this special need of children and their anxious parents. A full complement of very senior and experienced surgeons provides round-the-clock care. The surgeons are skilled in the handling of the very delicate and miniature tissues of babies. They specialize in all routine and complex surgery of neonates, children and adolescents and are able to give surgical results that match the best standards across the world. The various subspecialties covered include neonatal surgery, pediatric urology and gastrointestinal surgery, thoracic surgery, reconstructive surgery, pediatric orthopedics and neurosurgery.
