Paediatric Urology

Short hospital stay, good postoperative analgesia and care, and excellent results have made our hospital one of the institutions of choice for this specialty.

Paediatric Gastroenterology

Paediatric gastroenterology is a medical specialty focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and management of digestive problems. Anywhere in your child's digestive system can be affected; from their oesophagus and stomach to the small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

With a multidisciplinary team of paediatric consultants and specialised diagnostic imaging and nutritional services, we're able to provide the comprehensive care needed to manage a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Common paediatric GI conditions we treat include gastro-oesophageal reflux, ulcers, constipation, diarrhoea, lactose intolerance, gut infections and infant colic.

Paediatric Thoracic Surgery

In general, pediatric thoracic surgery involves diseases or injuries to the area of the body between the neck and the abdomen. Surgeons at Ragavendra Hospital specialize in general pediatric thoracic surgery, whether congenital, such as a birth defect, or acquired, such as pneumonia. Specific operations include removal of a lung growth or tumor, or removal of an abnormality that has been present since birth but which could become infected, such as a pulmonary sequestration or a congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation.

Pediatric Plastic Surgery

Pediatric plastic surgery is plastic surgery performed on children. Its 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.

All children become ill or injured at one time or another. Most problems are simple and can be solved by your pediatrician. At times, however, special care from a pediatric plastic surgeon may be needed and may make the difference in achieving the best possible cosmetic result. If you think your child needs this kind of special care, request a visit with a pediatric plastic surgeon

Pediatric Oncosurgery

Our pediatric surgeons work closely with specialists in hematology, oncology and radiology, as well as bone marrow transplant services to offer comprehensive care. Surgery often plays a critical role in a child’s cancer treatment. Here, your child will benefit from true multidisciplinary surgical care. Our pediatric surgeons collaborate with pediatric oncologists and other specialists to evaluate your child’s unique needs and develop a cohesive, comprehensive and thoughtful approach to their care.

Solid Cancers in children, unlike in adults, are generally curable. Some of these are Nephroblastoma, (Cancer of the Kidney), Neuroblastoma, Hepatoblastoma (Cancer of the liver), Rhabdomyosarcoma, Germ cell tumours etc.

Pediatric Endoscopy

Endoscopy allows inspection and biopsy of mucosal surfaces of the gastro-intestinal tract in addition to some therapeutic manoeuvres that would otherwise require a more invasive approach. Childhood endoscopy is most commonly indicated when the diagnoses of inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease or reflux oesophagitis are under consideration. By considering the symptoms of these more common childhood indications for endoscopy as potential indications for endoscopy, the non-specialist is likely to be referring many of the less common conditions requiring endoscopy for the procedure.

Pediatric Laparoscopy

Pediatric Laparoscopy were initially slower to adopt laparoscopic techniques than surgeons for adults. This was due to several limiting factors, including the lack of availability of child or adolescent-size instrumentation, surgical learning curves, and limited case volumes for complex procedures.

Laparoscopy in children and adolescents bears marked similarities to adult procedures, but experience with adult surgery does not sufficiently translate to safe surgery in pediatric patients. Pediatric procedures must be performed with a full understanding of the relevant anatomic and physiologic differences between the pediatric and adult populations.

Pediatric Radiology

A pediatric radiologist is an expert in the diagnosis of illnesses, injuries, and diseases of infants, children, and adolescents, using imaging techniques and equipment. Pediatric radiologists are specially trained to understand the unique needs of children, parents, and pediatricians in the diagnostic process. They have detailed knowledge of illnesses and medical conditions of infants and children. Their equipment, procedures, and staff are oriented to the special needs of children. If your child needs a medical imaging test or procedure, we have some advice on how the experience can be made less stressful for the whole family.
