A pediatric surgeon specializes in surgical operations on children. Conditions which require pediatric surgeons / pediatricians include congenital malformations: (lymphangioma, cleft lip and palate, esophageal atresia and trachea-esophageal fistula, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, intestinal atresia, necrotizing enterocolitis, meconium plugs, Hirschsprung's disease, imperforate anus, undescended testes) abdominal wall defects: omphalocele, gastroschisis, hernias.
Pediatrics surgery is an important specialty especially because of children’s inability to withstand aggressive surgical procedures. Pediatric surgeons collaborate with colleagues in pediatric medicine in recognition of conditions requiring pediatric surgery.
Pediatricians collaborate with other medical specialists such as neurologists, cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons and occupational therapists in managing the diseases affecting children and deciding on whether or not to operate on them.
