Pediatric Surgery

Pediatric surgery is the branch of surgery that deals with the treatment of surgical diseases in children aged 0-16.

Children are not simply miniature versions of adults. Therefore, surgical interventions involving children should be performed by pediatric surgeons, individuals who have received specialized training in pediatric care. Even conditions with similar names in children and adults may require vastly different treatment approaches. Minor surgical procedures in children, if not performed under appropriate conditions, can lead to significant psychological trauma. Pediatric surgery has emerged to meet these needs.

Pediatric surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures, from complex congenital anomalies to providing counseling to expectant parents regarding prenatal diagnoses. It involves the treatment of childhood diseases requiring surgical intervention and encompasses pediatric urology, including surgical and endoscopic procedures.

The majority of our surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing children to return home 2-3 hours after surgery. Advancements in anesthesia medications and techniques have enabled the resolution of surgical problems in children without complications.

Common pediatric surgical conditions include:

  • Inguinal hernia, hydrocele, and cord cyst
  • Umbilical hernia
  • Undescended testicle
  • Acute scrotum (emergency surgeries involving the testes and scrotum)
  • Umbilical polyp and granuloma
  • Conditions causing rectal bleeding (intussusception, anal fissure, polyps)
  • Fecal incontinence issues
  • Urinary incontinence problems (daytime and nighttime)
  • Appendicitis in children
  • Circumcision in infants (hypospadias)
  • Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
  • Microphallus
  • Circumcision
