What is Paediatric Surgery?
Paediatric surgery is a unique sub-specialty where the surgeons manage surgical conditions encountered in children, from newborns to teenagers.
Operating on children can be different from operating on adults. Recognising the unique needs of children undergoing surgery, we strive to minimise the anxiety and discomfort encountered by the child undergoing surgery. Our aim is to have a well child back home as soon as possible.
If you have been told that your child may need surgery, please make an enquiry or appointment with our paediatric surgeon for a consultation.
When Does My Child Need Paediatric Surgery?
From the head to the toe, our paediatric surgeon at Raffles Children's Centre can treat and manage a wide variety of conditions requiring surgery. Depending on your child’s condition, we will work with a paediatric anaesthesiologist or a paediatrician to provide the appropriate level of care.
Paediatric conditions we can treat include:
- Inguinal hernias
- Mal-Descended Testicles
- Traumatic injuries
- Foreign body ingestions
- Soft tissue lumps and bumps
