General Information

Who is a Paediatric Surgeon?

A paediatric surgeon is a specialist trained for operating on children. Children are not just smaller. They have problems which are unique to adults. Many of the surgical problems are due to faulty embryogenesis (process of development from a few cells to all functional organs). These may be seen during antenatal scans or at birth or sometimes later in life.
