Who Should Do Pediatric Surgery?
Pediatric Surgery is a very distinctive specialty in that it is age related whereas other specialties are either system or organ based e.g. Neuro Surgery and Cardiac Surgery. As a result of its specific nature it comes in conflict with not only General Surgery but also with other surgical specialties.
The child is NOT a small adult and should not be treated like one. At times, questions are raised as to who should operate on children with say Meningo-myelocele with Hydrocephalus – a Neuro Surgeon or a Pediatric Surgeon? Such entities should be managed by a specialist who is not only having the requisite surgical skills for the job but also has the complete understanding of the physiology of the newborn and a child and a Pediatric Surgeon is the right person for this surgical procedure
The field of Pediatric Surgery covers the age group from newborns to 18 yrs of age in accordance with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics. A Pediatric Surgeon operates on all systems in the child except for the heart and bones which are looked after by the respective specialists. In general, Pediatric Surgery covers all the abdominal surgery (G.I. Surgery & Genito Urinary Surgery), general procedures and a wide range of congenital malformations and deformities.
Kailash Hospital is one of the few hospitals in Noida where the complete range of Pediatric Laparoscopic Surgery is available for children who require these procedures.
