Department of Pediatric Surgery and Urology

The department was started in the hospital by the founder Prof.Dr.M.S.Ramakrishnan, who was a pioneer in the field of Pediatric surgery.

It is a busy specialty offering advanced tertiary care referral services and efficient day surgical care for routine and minor surgical problems. At present, over 1200 surgeries are being done every year in the fields of neonatal, oncological, gastroenterological, hepatobiliary, urological, thoracic, and laparoscopic surgeries.

There is round the clock emergency on call cover being provided by pediatric surgical residents and on-call consultants. Surgeries are performed in well equipped, modern theaters with experienced pediatric anesthetists for safe anesthesia and surgery.

We offer round the clock management of surgical emergencies, including the non surgical reduction of intussuception and management of pediatric trauma.

In the field of education, we run a DNB training program in pediatric surgery. Our students have won many accolades in these examinations. The department also maintains an active profile in research and publications both in the national and international front. Various workshops to demonstrate new techniques are conducted periodically.
