Department of pediatric general surgery
The department of pediatric general surgery at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona is one of the most advanced centres in Europe in its field. The department comprises a top-level group of pediatric surgeons with recognized experience, solid training and the ability to offer practical and efficient patient care solutions. The department's surgeons are available 24 hours a day if the child has an acute emergency. In their practice, doctors use minimally invasive surgery. Surgeons can operate through small incisions in the skin, through which a video camera and special instruments are inserted. As a result, the procedure is more effective and safe for the patient, and there is a significant aesthetic improvement compared to traditional surgery.
The department's surgeons pay great attention to emergency surgery, including appendicitis, intussusception, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and acute scrotal syndrome. In addition, doctors collaborate with neonatologists and pediatric traumatologists to provide comprehensive surgical care from the very birth of a child. In addition to emergency surgery, the medical team also specializes in elective surgery of the thoracic, abdominal, and urinary systems.
