Pediatric Surgery

The Department of Pediatric Surgery at Kasturba Hospital has played a significant role in the comprehensive treatment of all operative and non-operative pediatric surgical problems. This includes common problems such as hernias, hydroceles, pyloric stenosis, intussusceptions and urological problems. Uncommon problems include congenital anomalies and tumors of head and neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis. The surgeons and nurses in the Department of Pediatric Surgery are specially trained in the surgical care of infants and children. The Department functions in conjunction with Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology to provide comprehensive care to the surgical neonate, infant and child. All surgical conditions in the children from birth are successfully managed using world class facilities.
