Common disorders associated

Procedures performed:

  • Appendectomy – when the appendix becomes infected or it is painful due to inflammation, it may need to be removed.

  • Biliary atresia – this surgical procedure corrects a congenital birth defect where the bile produced by the liver cannot be emptied properly.

  • Various cancer treatments – there are a number of childhood cancers that a pediatric surgeon may be required to treat, which can include cancers of the liver, abdomen, kidneys or pancreas.

  • Congenital defects – there are numerous congenital defects that may impact the ability of a child to thrive.

  • Gallbladder surgery – the gallbladder may become infected due to a virus, formation of a stone or another medical condition.

  • Gastroschisis – this defect causes the intestines and stomach to fall from the body through a hole in the infant’s abdomen.

     

  • Bowed chest – this occurs when a child’s breast bone and ribs grow disproportionately and may require surgical intervention if braces and other forms of treatment do not correct the issue.

  • Reproductive defects – if a child has suffered from a congenital defect of the genitals, surgical intervention may be required to remove tumors and cysts or to correct dysfunction of the organs.

  • Removal of the spleen – it is possible for a child to need to undergo a splenectomy if suffering from certain disorders of the blood or if he or she has suffered a traumatic injury.

  • Bariatric surgery – a treatment for childhood obesity where a balloon is inserted into the esophagus to narrow the opening and reduce appetite.

  • Removal of diseased intestines – some birth defects result in the inflammation of the bowel followed by tissue death.

  • Hernia surgery – if a child is born with a hole in the groin that does not close on its own, the surgeon may need to perform a surgical procedure in order to prevent the intestines from falling through this opening.

  • GERD treatment – also referred to as acid reflux, GERD often occurs when stomach acid is able to flow back up the esophagus.

  • Abnormal pathways – when a child’s trachea or esophagus is malformed, it can result in respiratory or digestive problems.

  • Imperforate anus – if a child is born without an opening in the anus, or when the opening is in the wrong location, a surgical procedure is required to allow waste to be eliminated through the bowel.
