If your child has an illness, injury, or disease that requires surgery, a paediatric /Pediatric surgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat your child. Surgical problems seen by paediatric/Pediatric surgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general surgeons. Special training in paediatric surgery is important.
Paediatric /Pediatric surgeons treat children from the newborn stage through late adolescence. They choose to make paediatric/Pediatric care the core of their medical practice and the unique nature of medical and surgical care of children are learned from advanced training and experience in practice.
Paediatric surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage children’s surgical needs such as surgery for abnormalities of the groin in childhood and adolescence which include undescended testes, hernias, hydroceles and varicocel, surgical repair of birth defects, transplantation operations, endoscopic procedures and more.
