Because it’s the little ones who need all the care.
The department of Paediatric Surgery is now a well-established unit in our hospital with a paediatric surgeon available round the clock. The division offers dedicated surgical service to children.
In the short span of past two and a half years, since September 2011, we have operated many complicated neonatal and other paediatric surgical cases. with the excellent new born services in the hospital, we are able to perform major neonatal surgeries like tracheo esophageal fistula, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, bowel atresias, anorectal malformations and neonatal tumors and able to give very good post-operative care. Sick older children are taken care of in Paediatric Intensive Care (PICU) and Post-operative care to them is given by the Paediatric surgeon with qualified paediatric intensivist.
As we have a very advanced paediatric oncology division in the hospital, we regularly operate paediatric malignancies. In fact, ours is the only center in South Tamilnadu doing permanent life port insertions in significant numbers, for administering chemotherapy in children. This is a milestone in care for children with cancer which has improved their quality of life.
The department is updating itself academically by participating in various conferences. Studies are being done on special areas and articles are being published in journals by the department.
DAY CARE PROCEDURES:
We do several minor operations and procedures for children at the minor operation theatre that saves a lot of time and allows paediatric patients to be managed in day care basis.
