Video Tele Consultation Facility- Currently NOT functioning

Due to COVID restrictions and difficulty for patients to physically visit the hospital, we had developed a android app for Video- Tele-Consultation with doctors at KKCTH. The name of the app is “kkcth child care online”. The app can be downloaded from the play store and installed in the android phone that is registered with the hospital.

As of now we are awaiting upgraded version of the software app and so the facility is not available.

Babies less than 1 month may be referred to neonatal unit (NICU) which is situated in third floor. Patients above 18 years may be refused to be seen as this is a children’s hospital.

Pediatric surgical services

As part of Redesigning, refurbishing all the hospital floors, the fourth floor- which is the surgical ward has been completed and was opened on 4th June 2015.  The child friendly 4th floor was inaugurated by His Holiness Sri Jayendra Saraswathi & Our beloved chairman Mr.A.C.Muthiah on 4th June 2015.

The ward is sparkling new with more single rooms with en-suite bathrooms pleasingly and aesthetically designed to the satisfaction of the families of surgical patients. We are sure these changes will make the hospital stay during the most difficult times easy and comfortable.

It is well recognized that minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery (“keyhole surgery”) has a significant note to play in children with surgical problems. The Department of Pediatric Surgery started performing laparoscopic procedures many years ago. Today most procedures like appendicectomy, cholecystectomy and urological procedures like orchidopexy and Mullerian remnant excision as well as tumor surgery are all done laparoscopically. Also video assisted thoracoscopy is used to deal with children who need decortication of the lung, diaphragmatic hernia etc. Minimally invasive surgery has reduced the morbidity and duration of hospital stay significantly in our patients.
