Children are precious; there are no two ways about it. As parents, you want the best life for them and do everything in your capacity to ensure this. We follow the same credo at Manipal Hospitals when it comes to children’s health, to provide comprehensive and holistic paediatric healthcare services under one roof in a cheerful and compassionate ambience.
Given that this speciality involves the entire gamut of surgical services in children affecting various organs of their body, our multidisciplinary team of paediatricians, paediatric surgeons, paediatric oncologists, paediatric urologists and neonatologists pit their expertise together to perform a wide range of surgeries in newborns and children. In neonatal surgery, some conditions include gastroschisis - a birth defect hole in the abdominal wall; in paediatric urology surgery, certain urological conditions, such as hypospadias are frequently present at birth or in young people; paediatric oncology surgery deals with common childhood cancers such as leukemia.
This rare speciality of surgery deals with the diseases like Inguinal Hernia in Children, malformations and trauma among children from the womb to their teenage years. The paediatric surgeons’ scope of surgical prowess encompasses all conditions in this age group, particularly small children.
