Our area of work includes the following surgical streams in children from new born to adolescents.
Surgery for hypospadias, Laparoscopic surgery, vascular access (Chemo ports, Hickman catheters) for Pediatric Oncology and surgical oncology for solid tumors are areas of special expertise.
We in pediatric surgery have progressed from the basic laparoscopic procedures like appendectomy, Orchidopexy to advanced procedures like Pyeloplasty for Uretero-pelvic junction obstruction, Cysto- gastrostomy for pseudo cyst of pancreas, fundoplication for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease etc.
With the recent acquisitions of Telescopic optical bronchoscope foreign bodies of airways are been retrieved with ease. Also 3mm laparoscopic instruments has allowed us to offer minimally invasive surgeries to neonates and infants.
