Paediatric surgeons are specialists who diagnose, treat, and provide surgical care for a wide range of conditions in infants, children, and adolescents. Some common conditions that I treat include:

  • Hernias: Hernias in children can occur in the groin (inguinal hernia) or around the belly button (umbilical hernia). These hernias are treated through surgery.

  • Appendicitis: Inflamed or infected appendix often requires surgical removal (appendectomy) to prevent complications.

  • Congenital Anomalies: These are conditions present at birth and may include conditions like intestinal atresia, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, gastroschisis, omphalocoele, oesphageal atresia with or with out a fistula, congenital lung malformations, anorectal malformations

  • Gastrointestinal Conditions: Conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), pyloric stenosis, and intestinal obstructions.

  • Tumors: Removal of benign or malignant tumors in various parts of the body, including neuroblastomas, Wilms tumors, and liver tumors.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Conditions like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can sometimes require surgery, such as bowel resections.

  • Anorectal Malformations: Conditions like imperforate anus, which require surgical correction.

  • Other colorectal conditions: Hirschsprung's Disease and Constipation

  • Urological Conditions: Conditions like undescended testicles, and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), PUJ obstruction, posterior urethral valves. Neonatal and older children Circumcision for religious or medical reasons. 

  • Chest and Lung Conditions: Surgeries for congenital lung malformations, tracheoesophageal fistula, and lung tumors.

  • Trauma: Paediatric surgeons may be involved in treating injuries and abdominal trauma.

  • Skin Lesions and Tumors: Removal of skin lesions or tumors, including birthmarks and moles.

  • Biliary Tract Conditions: Gallbladder or biliary tract problems in children may require surgical intervention. 

  • Vascular Anomalies: Surgical treatment of vascular birthmarks and other vascular anomalies.

  • Minimally Invasive Surgery: I can also perform minimally invasive procedures (laparoscopy) for various conditions, reducing surgical invasiveness.

  • These are just a few examples of the many conditions that I diagnose and treat. Paediatric surgery involves specialized training and expertise in providing surgical care to young patients, taking into account their unique needs and developmental considerations.
