Overview

MIOT’s surgeons in the Department of Paediatric Surgery perform a wide range of elective and emergency procedures on their little patients, including correction of congenital malformations, abdominal wall defects and chest wall deformities, removal of tumours and multi-modal cancer care.

A sub-speciality of surgery, paediatric surgery involves surgical operations on children up to the age of 14. They are usually referred to us by their child specialists/paediatricians. Our paediatric surgeons focus on preserving the organs of our little patients.

Special facilities for little patients

MIOT’s state-of-the-art facilities for paediatric surgery include dedicated laminar-flow operation theatres and a Paediatric ICU.

Dedicated paediatric laparoscopy, cystoscopy and flexible endoscopy facilities enable our expert paediatric surgeons to perform complex surgery on babies as tiny as a day old.
