Common ailments requiring paediatric surgery in children & adolescents
Pediatric surgery is a medical specialty that deals with the surgical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatric surgeons work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and private practices.
Most pediatric surgeons complete a residency in general surgery before completing a fellowship in pediatric surgery. Fellowships typically last two to three years. During their training, pediatric surgeons acquire skills in the management of complex surgical problems in infants, children, and adolescents.
Pediatric surgeons treat a wide range of conditions, including congenital anomalies, trauma, tumors, and vascular anomalies. They also perform minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic surgery. In addition to their surgical skills, pediatric surgeons must be proficient in communication and have the ability to deal with families who are under stress.
