Paediatric Surgery

The Advanced Paediatric Surgical Centre was established in Nov 2002 as part of the ongoing process of creating super speciality services under one roof.

Antenatal Management:
As most of the congenital deformities can be diagnosed during antenatal check-ups, the parent counseling, plan of management, advice regarding time and mode of delivery can be discussed with the concerned obstetrician and the changes in the management can be made.

Paediatric Gastroenterology:
The Centre is totally equipped with facilities for operations of GIT, hepatobiliary, PSARP and pull through procedures. We also have facilities for interventional radiology whenever needed.

Paediatric Urology:
It is an important subspeciality of urology. Only a few centres have the facility to look after paediatric urology patients. The hospital has a full set of paediatric endoscopes. Common urological problems like post-urethral valves, vesico-uretric reflux & pelvi-uretric obstruction are managed routinely. The operation theatre is well equipped to look after this age group. Approximately 40% of paediatric surgery cases pertain to paediatric urology, which includes post uretheral valves, VUR, hydronephrosis, hypospadias, extrophy of bladder etc. As the hopital was originally looking after kidney problems, all these conditions have been dealt with during the last one year.

Paediatric Neurosurgery (PNS):
Meningoceles, meningomyeloceles, encephalocele and congenital hydrocephalous are various problems of PNS, which are being treated by us.

Paediatric Laparoscopy:
Complete facilities are available for Laparoscopic intervention of abdominal testes (UDT), inter sex anomalies, cholecystectomy etc.

Interventional Radiology:
It has brought about a remarkable change in the management of various urological diseases. The hospital provides well-developed interventional radiology services. Procedures like PCN, ureteral stenting, uretheral stenting etc. are done routinely. It is also used in the management of post transplant complications like urinary leak, ureteral stricture, lymphocele etc.

The hospital has upgraded the services of Neuro-Urology & Urodynamics. The facility of advanced computerized Urodynamic evaluation including Video-Urodynamic is available. This hospital is one of the few centres in India having advanced Urodynamics.

Laboratory Facility:
The hospital has a well-equipped biochemical, heamatological, microbiological and renal laboratory, which is run by an experienced pathologist and a microbiologist. Emergency investigations are carried out round the clock while specialized investigations are done during working hours. Highly specialized investigations are carried out in association with reference laboratories. We offer specialty care to children of all ages, from the premature infant to the 12-year-olds. We have an active and up to date laparoscopic team.
