Paediatric surgery

Paediatric surgery is a subspeciality of surgery involving procedures on fetuses, infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Children, especially infants and newborns, have different medical and surgical needs compared to those of adults, and they tend to need extra care. Many paediatric surgeons practice at children's hospitals.
