Tips for Parenting and Child Care

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).

Technically, tongue tie is a congenital birth condition where a short, thick band of tissue (called the lingual frenulum) tightly tethers the tongue’s tip to the floor of the mouth.

Stomach Pain in Kids: Don’t Dismiss Recurrent Stomach Aches!

Stomach pain in kids is very common. One in four children develop abdominal pain at some point between 3-18 years of age. It is one of the most common reasons why parents seek advice from a pediatric gastroenterologist.

Chronic abdominal pain is stomach ache in children that usually lasts for more than 2 months and does not respond to traditional treatments.

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?

The most common form of hernia in children is known as umbilical hernia, wherein the growing infant’s abdominal wall fails to close completely around the umbilical cord.
