When your child needs medical treatment, you want him or her to have the very best care available. If your child needs an operation, you will want to consult with a surgeon who is qualified and experienced in operating on children. Pediatric surgeons specialize in the surgical care of children. They are surgeons who, by training, are oriented toward working with children and understanding their special needs. Pediatric surgeons operate on children whose development ranges from the newborn stage through the teenage years. Pediatric surgeons are able to save whole lifetimes, and have the opportunity to follow their patients through a productive young life into adulthood.
Following services are offered for children at Amardeep Multispeciality Children Hospital:
Surgical Specialities :
Surgery which involves special knowledge and expertise in the surgical repair of birth defects, some of which may be life threatening to premature and full-term infants.
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) / Minimally Access Surgery (MAS)
The field of Minimally Invasive Surgery or Minimally Access Surgery (MAS) as it is commonly known has grown remarkably over the past 2 decades. The imaginations and creativity of pediatric surgeons worldwide has lead to a broad array or surgeries that can now be performed without large incisions. It has shorter hospital stays, less analgesic requirement after surgery, more rapid return to school and cosmetic satisfaction. MAS has a great impact on the way we manage pediatric surgical problems today.
A major advantage is that MAS is therapeutic for most of its indications hence bringing about a significant reduction in the morbidity of the procedure. MAS has been divided into laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, mediastinoscopy, retroperitoneoscopy and ventriculoscopy according to the body compartment in which it has been used.
Pediatric Endoscopic Surgery
Endoscopy is derived form the Greek words endo, meaning ‘within’ and skopeo meaning ‘to look’, or ‘to view’. Endoscopy techniques allow us to look inside the body and enable us to form a reliable diagnosis. Over the years, pediatric endoscopy has developed rapidly into a highly sophisticated procedure allowing both diagnostic and therapeutic benefits to everyone.
Pediatric surgical endoscopy encompasses broad spectrum of practice, including rigid and flexible endoscopy of the airway, thorax, abdomen, gastrointestinal tract, and genitourinary tract. All neonatal and pediatric endoscopies like oesophagoscopy, gastroscopy, laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, cystourethroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy are routinely carried out at Amardeep Hospital.
This subspeciality deals with the disorders of children’s genitourinary systems. The association of pediatric nephrology services at this hospital provides a comprehensive care for complex problems of pediatric urology.
Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery
Provides care for children and young adults with developmental disorders, congenital, neuromuscular and post-traumatic problems of the musculoskeletal system.
Pediatric Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
These procedures are most often conducted for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. In children, this line is often blurred, as many congenital deformities impair physical function as well as aesthetics. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body that are the result of congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease. Reconstructive surgery is most often undertaken to regain normal motor function or prevent current or future health problems.
Pediatric surgeons are routinely faced with critical care situations involving traumatic injuries sustained by children that may or may not require surgical intervention.
Pediatric surgeons are involved in the diagnosis and surgical care of children with malignant tumors as well as those with benign growths.
For problems involving the head, spine or nervous system of the child.

Speciality Clinics :
Antenatal Counseling Clinic
With the advancement in ultrasound and other technologies, abnormalities during the fetal stage of a child’s development can be detected.
Prenatal diagnosis of fetal anomalies may lead to fetal surgery, which is a new forefront in the speciality of pediatric surgery. However, applications of most fetal surgical techniques are still in the experimental stage.
Detection of prenatal anomalies can help educate the parents regarding the anomaly and also plan the place and time of delivery of the affected child so that immediate care can be provided without wasting important time.
