What is a pediatric surgeon?
Children frequently receive surgical care from general surgeons, who are fully qualified to carry out a variety of procedures on them.
Pediatric surgeons perform surgery on kids whose stages of development extend from infancy through adolescence. Pediatric surgeons complete two more years of specialized training in pediatric surgery after completing their schooling and becoming board certified. After that, they are given a particular certification in the pediatric surgery subspecialty.
Who administers my child’s anesthesia?
An anesthesiologist with specialized training in pediatric anesthesia oversees your child’s anesthesia at all times. They will meet you either the morning of your child’s procedure or at their pre-operative (“Pre-care”) examination.
After surgery, what should my child eat?
Following surgery, some kids experience nausea. Offer your child tiny amounts of bland food after encouraging them to drink liquids. After then, your youngster might transition to a conventional diet.
What part does the pediatric surgeon play in the child's care?
The diagnostic, preoperative, operational, and postoperative care of surgical disorders in children are the primary concerns of pediatric surgeons. Unless these issues are surgically fixed, several medical conditions in neonates are not compatible with a good quality of life.
Neonatal specialists, pediatricians, and family doctors must identify these disorders right away. When deciding whether surgery is the best course of treatment for a kid, pediatric surgeons work closely with all of the other professionals engaged in that child’s care.
Will my child require a blood test before the procedure?
Most healthy babies and kids won’t need any significant preoperative testing or blood testing.
Will my child receive an IV before the procedure?
The IV will be started after the kid has fallen asleep from inhaled anesthetic.
