PAEDIATRICS SURGERY

Children undergoing surgery need an entirely different set of management because of their smaller sizes and more vulnerable conditions. The good thing, however, is that children tend to heal faster because their body cells are growing at a faster pace than adults. Our paediatric surgeon not only looks into the surgical aspects of the specialty but also takes into account the young patient’s physical and mental state of mind, as well as that of the parents or guardians.
