Overview

Centre for Child Health is one of the most comprehensive Centres for child care in the entire region and provides excellent care in General Paediatrics, Asthma & Allergy, Adolescent Medicine, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology, Developmental Paediatrics, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Haematology and Oncology.

The Hospital has a dedicated Paediatric Surgery programme for a wide range of congenital and acquired conditions requiring surgical intervention.

The 8-bed NICU unit is equipped with high-end monitors, incubators, high-frequency ventilators and surfactant therapy to deal with any level of medical complications in the newborn. The Centre also has a 12-bed Paediatric ICU managed by one of the most experienced teams of highly specialized intensivists in the country. Being one of the handful Level III neonatal ICUs, the Unit undertakes transport and care of critically ill children from the neighbouring states for management in BLK-Max Super Speciality Hospital.

Robotic surgery for children is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses advanced robotic technology to perform complex procedures with greater precision and control. The procedure is performed by a surgeon who operates the robotic instruments while viewing the surgical site through a 3D high-definition camera.

Robotic surgery is typically less painful than traditional surgery due to smaller incisions, less blood loss, and a shorter recovery time. However, every child's experience can be different, and pain can vary depending on the type of surgery and the child's individual pain tolerance.

Robotic surgery is used to treat a wide range of conditions in children. Its main implication is in pediatric urological procedures. Here are some of the most common conditions treated with robotic surgery:

  • Urologic disorders: Disorders in children, such as vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), are treated with robotics. VUR is a condition where urine flows back up from the bladder into the kidneys, which can cause kidney damage.

  • Gastro-Instestinal Disorders: Robotic surgery has definite advantages in treating various gastro -intestinal surgeries like fundoplication, resection of choledochal cyst, mesenteric cyst, pancretic surgery etc.

  • Tumours: Tumours can be cancerous or non-cancerous and can occur in different body parts. Robotic surgery is a precise and efficient way to remove tumours while minimising damage to surrounding tissue.

  • Robotics can also be used in various thoracis proedures like mediastinal cysts and tumors , lobectomy for congenital lung lesions , diaphragmatic hernis etc.

Overall, robotic surgery can be used in a wide range of surgeries in children, offering many benefits over traditional surgeries.

Robotic surgery is generally safe for children when performed by a qualified and experienced surgical team. However, as with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications, such as bleeding, infection, and anaesthesia complications. These risks can vary depending on the type of surgery and the child's individual health status.

Recovery time can vary depending on the type of surgery and the child's individual health status. In general, robotic surgery allows for a faster recovery time than traditional surgery due to smaller incisions and less tissue damage.

Scarring is typically less prominent with robotic surgery due to smaller incisions. However, scarring can still occur, and the extent of scarring can vary depending on the type of surgery and the child's individual healing process.

Preparing your child for robotic surgery involves talking with your healthcare professional, following pre-surgery instructions, and discussing the surgery with your child in an age-appropriate manner. Your healthcare professional can provide guidance on how to prepare your child for the surgery.
