Paediatric Surgery

Paediatric surgery is a subspecialty of surgery involving the surgery of fetuses, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

Many paediatric surgeons practice at children’s hospitals. Subspecialties of paediatric surgery itself include neonatal surgery and fetal surgery.

Other areas of surgery also have paediatric specialities of their own that require further training during the residencies and in a fellowship:

  • Paediatric cardiothoracic (surgery on the child’s heart and/or lungs, including heart and/or lung transplantation).
  • Paediatric nephrological surgery (surgery on the child’s kidneys and ureters, including renal and kidney transplantation).
  • Paediatric neurosurgery (surgery on the child’s brain, central nervous system, spinal cord and peripheral nerves).
  • Paediatric urological surgery (surgery on the child’s urinary bladder and other structures below the kidney necessary for ejaculation).
  • Paediatric emergency surgery, surgery involving fetuses or embryos (overlapping with obstetric/ gynaecological surgery, neonatology, and maternal-fetal medicine).
  • Surgery involving adolescents or young adults, paediatric hepatological (liver) and gastrointestinal (stomach and intestines) surgery (including liver and intestinal transplantation in children).
  • Paediatric orthopaedic surgery (muscle and bone surgery in children).
  • Paediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery (such as for burns, or for congenital defects like cleft palate not involving the major organs.

Neonatology

The Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at OMNI RK is the best in Andhra Pradesh in terms of design, medical infrastructure, equipment and quality of care. This 30 bedded NICU has world-class warmers, ventilators, phototherapy units and other equipment. It has separate cubicles for inborn, outborn and septic babies. What sets the NICU apart is the fact that it offers facilities which very few health care centres in India are equipped with.

Dr K. Seshagiri, the best neonatologist in Vizag who has done his DM Neonatology from the prestigious PGIMER, Chandigarh, is the first Neonatologist of Visakhapatnam and has more than 10 years of post DM experience and is Chief Neonatologist of our Department of Neonatology. Survival rates in our NICU are more than 90% because of strict asepsis protocols by trained Nurses, good infrastructure and dedicated registrars of our department.

Especially for gynaecologists who are planning premature deliveries because of maternal and fetal indications and high-risk cases, they can shift the mothers to our hospital admit under their care and utilize our facilities (in utero transfer), because it is very difficult to shift the sick preterm babies safely.
