Pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery : During the early stages of formation of heart in children, the natural process may get disturbed in some children due to various factors that may be genetic or environmental. Unfortunately, we do not have much control over these factors. These factors can interact to alter the development of the heart during the early stages and hence may cause a defect in the heart of the child. This type of heart defect that is present since the time of birth is known as Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).Many of such defects may either obstruct blood flow in the heart or may cause blood to flow in an abnormal pattern through the heart. Congenital heart defects are among the most common birth defects. Not all congenital heart defects may need a treatment but there are some serious congenital heart defects that may require treatment like medication or surgery. Our network heart hospitals for children in India have the most sophisticated technology available, including specially designed and dedicated operation theaters, inpatient wards, examination rooms and post-operative intensive care units (ICU). The operation theaters and the intensive care units are equipped with high end support devices with necessary infrastructural backup that is required to give your child the best care.

A liver transplant surgery may improve the length and quality of life of children who are suffering from liver failure. There are various reasons your child may require a liver transplant surgery like Biliary Atresia, Autoimmune Hepatitis, Acute Liver Failure etc. A child with liver disease requires skillful management by an experienced multidisciplinary team that includes pediatric hepatologists, pediatric liver transplant surgeons, advanced practice nurses, a nutritionist, a social worker, and a parent support group.

It is very important to detect and treat the eye disorders in children because if not treated in time then it can lead to irreversible visual loss. Many children usually do not complain of any visual problem since most of the eye problems in children may not cause any immediate pain or swelling. Hence it becomes utmost important to have the child examined by an experienced paediatric ophthalmologist. There are chances that your child may have significant refractive errors inspite of the child being asymptomatic. Ideally the child has to be examined by the paediatric ophthalmologist between 6 -12 months of age and then at 3 years and at 5 years of age.
