How is pediatric surgery different from surgery in adults?

Surgery in children is different from surgery in adults because a child’s body is still developing. This process of development influences decision making in many ways.

There are certain conditions that an adult surgeon may not be able to handle in a child. A pediatric surgeon with many years of experience may understand whether it is in the best interest of the child to intervene surgically right away or after attempting medical management of the condition.

What do pediatric surgeons do?

Pediatric surgeons understand the considerations that need to be kept in mind for a child. Our surgeons have expertise in performing complicated surgeries in children of all ages, especially pre-term infants.

They give attention to the complaints of the child and understand the impact on the child’s physical, mental and emotional well being. Treating the child is far more important than treating abnormalities in the reports.

What type of surgeries do we offer?

Under the guidance of Dr DK Mitra, our Pediatric Surgery team has experience in a whole range of planned and unplanned surgeries such as:

  • Hernia (Inguinal, Umbilical etc)
  • Tongue Tie
  • Hydrocele
  • Circumcision
  • Appendicitis
  • Foreign body removal
  • Wound repair

Surgeries in neonates including Diaphragmatic hernia, Abdominal wall defects like gastroschisis, exomphalos, spinal defects eg meningo myelocoele, Tracheo esophageal fistula and many more.

Informational Articles for Parents and Caregivers

Dr. D.K. Mitra would like all parents to be as informed as possible about their children’s health. Check out these articles created with his editorial inputs.


Foreign Body Removal – Precautions Every Parent Should Take

Does your child have the frequent habit of pushing things up his nose or ear? If proper precautions are not taken, that object can end up in the wrong place and cause issues and force a parent to seek immediate medical help.


Hernia in Children – Is Treatment Required?

Did you know that although hernia can occur at any age, almost one-third incidences of hernia in children occur in the first 6 months after birth, especially in a premature baby?


Tongue Tie Treatment: Does Your Child Need Surgery?

The suspicion of tongue tie is a source of anxiety in parents. The need for tongue tie treatment is one of the reasons worried parents approach a pediatric surgeon when their infants are diagnosed with ankyloglossia (tongue tie).
