What is Paediatrics Surgery

Children undergoing surgery need an entirely different set of management protocols because of their smaller sizes and more vulnerable conditions. The good thing, however, is that children tend to heal faster because their cells grow at a faster pace than adults. Our paediatric surgeons look into not just the surgical aspects but also take into account our young patients’ physical and mental state, while reassuring parents or guardians.
