Newborn surgery

What is newborn surgery?

It is very rare for an infant to undergo newborn surgery. These surgeries are performed usually on babies who are younger than 4 weeks old or still in the womb. Most newborn surgeries are performed on infants who are born prematurely or suffer from severe urological ailments. Sometimes it is also performed on kids under the age of 6 months if it is possible to wait for it.

Fun Facts: It is very rare as it strikes once in 4200 births.

What are the signs which indicate that my baby needs surgery?

When a baby is born with certain urological ailments we recommend newborn surgery. This is done to prevent further complications which a child will face later in life. Some signs which show the need for surgery in kids are:

  • If a part of an organ like the intestine is outside the belly rather than inside.
  • For hernia treatment- When a newborn infant develops a hernia inguinal surgery becomes essential.
  • If a kid is born with spina bifida, an ailment of the spinal cord which afflicts the newborns.

How does a pediatric urologist decide upon the surgery?

Our pediatric urologist will first do the diagnosis like an ultrasound scan in the womb to confirm the presence of ailment like spina bifida. Most of the times we know about newborn birth defects through ultrasound and if there is any complication we suggest to have more regular ultrasounds to check for the development of the organs.

What factors help in deciding the right time of surgery for the newborn?

There are many factors which a pediatric urologist surgeon will consider before the surgery. We always look for these before suggesting the surgical treatment for newborns:

  • It depends on the seriousness of the condition.
  • if surgery in the womb can save the life of the baby.

What are the surgical methods for newborn surgery?

We use the latest technology to operate on newborns. The advancement in technology has made it possible to use laparoscopic surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery- In laparoscopic surgery, a small tube-like structure having a camera and tools on end is inserted in the baby’s skin through small incisions. The surgeon views the internal organs on the screen and uses tools to cut and heal the organs.
