It is a department dealing with the diagnosis and operations of surgical disease of children between 0-17 ages. Congenital or acquired diseases which require surgical intervention, apart from Orthopedics, ophthalmology, ENT, neurosurgery and cardiac surgery, are included in the pediatric surgery.
In the Pediatric Surgery Department of the Private Gazıosmanpasa Hospital, all technological opportunities for the diagnosis and treatment of the surgical problems which may occur before or after the birth are available. Moreover, we benefit from our well-equipped newborn intensive care unit for the follow-up of the newborn after operation.
The operations in the Pediatric Surgery Department are performed by local or general anesthesia.
Surgeries performed with local anesthesia?
(Falls, bumps, traffic accidents, drill - suturing of the wound with sharp instruments, abscess evacuation, subcutaneous biopsies, lymph node biopsies)
They are performed in operating room for small operations in emergency surgery department. In addition, some clean wounds (superficial wounds) are treated without suture by using tissue adhesive.
We work coordinately with the departments such as: Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery, Plastic surgery and ENT in the cases of emergency traffic accidents, falls, bumps
