What Is Pediatric Surgery?

Pediatric surgery is a type of surgery specifically designed for infants, children, and teenagers. It deals with diagnosing, treating, and managing surgical conditions in these young patients. Pediatric surgeons specialize in operating on kids because their bodies differ from adults.

Borneo Hospital in Thane offers Pediatric Surgery services specifically tailored to the needs of children. The hospital has a dedicated Pediatrics team consisting of highly skilled pediatric surgeons. 

The hospital understands that the health and well-being of children are of utmost importance, and its specialized team ensures that each child receives the best possible care during their surgical journey.

You should see a pediatric surgeon if your child has any of the following conditions:

  • A congenital defect, such as cleft palate, clubfoot, or hernias
  • An acquired condition, such as appendicitis, intussusception, or trauma
  • Cancer, such as Wilms tumor or neuroblastoma

Most Common Pediatric Procedures

  • Endoscopic Surgery: Pediatric surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal disorders, airway abnormalities, or urological issues.
  • Electrocauterization: This procedure involves using a specialized instrument that applies heat or electricity to seal blood vessels or remove abnormal tissue. 
  • Thyroid Surgery: This removes all or part of the thyroid gland in cases of thyroid nodules, goiters, or thyroid cancer.
  • Laparoscopy: Laparoscopic procedures involve using small incisions and a camera to perform surgeries within the abdomen or pelvis. Pediatric surgeons perform laparoscopy for conditions like appendicitis, ovarian cysts, or diagnostic purposes.
  • Colonoscopy: Pediatric surgeons perform a colonoscopy to examine and treat conditions affecting the large intestine, such as inflammatory bowel disease, polyps, or bleeding.
  • Liver Disease Treatment: Pediatric surgeons treat liver diseases in children, including surgeries for liver tumors, liver transplantation, or procedures to address congenital liver conditions.
  • Trauma Surgery: Pediatric surgeons play a critical role in managing traumatic injuries in children, and providing surgical interventions to repair fractures, internal organ injuries, or other trauma-related conditions.
  • Appendicitis Treatment: Appendectomy, the surgical removal of the appendix, is a common procedure pediatric surgeons perform to treat appendicitis, which is inflammation of the appendix.
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI): Pediatric surgeons perform surgeries to address recurrent or complicated urinary tract infections in children, such as correcting structural abnormalities or managing vesicoureteral reflux.
  • Gall Bladder (Biliary) Stone Treatment: Pediatric surgeons perform surgical interventions to treat gallbladder stones.
  • Hemorrhoids Treatment: Pediatric surgeons perform procedures to manage hemorrhoids in children, such as rubber band ligation or surgical removal.
  • Pediatric Surgery: Pediatric surgeons perform a wide range of general pediatric surgeries, including hernia repairs, cleft lip and palate repair, hypospadias correction, or surgical management of congenital anomalies.
