This department also has a specialized team to handle critical congenital disorders.
The department is committed to providing and promoting excellence in surgical care. Our surgeons and nurses are specially trained to treat fetal patients, newborns, infants, toddlers, children and young adults. We perform a broad range of general surgical procedures, including minor office procedures, as well as inpatient and outpatient procedures.
The department provides compassionate, family-centered, world-class pediatric care, to restore children and adolescents to health so that they can return to their everyday activities as soon as possible.
Paediatric surgeons use minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures to treat conditions that require surgical intervention. General paediatric surgery requires a multidisciplinary participation from paediatric gastroenterologists, paediatric respiratory physicians, paediatric endocrinologists, dieticians and speech therapists.
Common paediatric diseases that may require paediatric surgery include:
- Congenital malformations such as heart defect, lung defects, abdominal wall defects and chest wall deformities
- Surgical oncology such as thoracic surgery
- Separation of conjoined twins
