Counselling for Fetal Anomalies
Prenatal diagnosis of fetal anomalies may arouse fear, anxiety and distress in the parents. At Healthway, we provide specialized counselling to help parents cope with the distress.
General Paediatric Surgery
Paediatric Surgery is a specialised field involving correction of defects that a child is born with, so as to restore the normal anatomical & physiological function. At Healthway Hospital it is accomplished with trained paediatric surgeons, paediatric anaesthetist and support staff trained for giving special care.
Hypospadias and Intersex anomalies
Hypospadias is a congenital disorder of the urethra where the urinary opening is not at the usual location on the head of the penis. It is the second-most common birth abnormality of the male reproductive system. Usually surgery is required for this condition to restore normal appearance and function to the penis.
Neonatal surgery is a surgical sub-specialty of paediatric surgery that consists of the surgical management and care of newborn infants, especially premature newborn infants. At Healthway we have surgeons who perform corrective surgeries, including chest, abdominal, and urological defects in infants.
Flexible Bronchoscopy is an important procedure for evaluating the paediatric airway, vocal cords, trachea, bronchi and bronchioles using a bronchoscope.
Paediatric Genito-urinary Surgery
Paediatric patients are likely to have one or many co-existing conditions, including congenital malformations of the genitalia or urinary tract, or acquired diseases of the genitourinary tract. Paediatric Urology is practised by Paediatric Surgeons with a special interest and training in paediatric urology.
Paediatric Head, Face and Neck Surgery
Paediatric Head, Face and Neck Surgery is a specialised field involving correction of defects of the head, face and neck that a child is born with, so as to restore the normal anatomical & physiological function. At Healthway Hospital it is accomplished with trained paediatric surgeons, paediatric anaesthetist and support staff trained for giving special care.
Paediatric Solid Tumours
Solid tumours make up about 30% of all paediatic cancers. The most common types of solid tumours in children include brain tumours, neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, Wilms’ tumour, and osteosarcoma. At Healthway, we strive to detect these early and hence achieve complete recovery of the child.
Paediatric Thoracic Surgery ( Non Cardiac )
We treat problems related to thoracic surgery, including diseases of the chest wall, pleura, mediastinum, diaphragm, lungs, tracheobronchial tree, and esophagus.
Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus
Spina bifida is the most frequently occurring permanently disabling birth defect. It affects the development of the spine, spinal cord and the brain. For everyone born with spina bifida at least one spinal vertebra is only partly formed and the spinal cord at that point and below as well as the skin around the site are not properly developed. In about 90% of people with spina bifida, the alteration to the brains development causes hydrocephalus. Multiple surgeries, other medical treatment, medication, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, medical aids, assistive equipment and assistance at school and beyond are all required in the treatment of spina bifida.
Our Doctors are well experienced in key hole surgeries of the abdomen or thoracic region. These are preferred as they are minimally invasive and result in early recovery.
