Paediatric Surgery Awareness Week

All throughout India Paediatric Surgery Awareness Week is being conducted by IAPS (Indian Association of Paediatric Surgeons). On this occasion, we in SDM College of Medical Science and Hospital are conducting various awareness programs.
Paediatric surgery deals with all types of surgeries in newborns and children from birth to 14 years of age. Now a days most of the anomalies are detected antenatallyand pregnancies are terminated even though these are non-lifethreatning. These unnecessary abortions can be prevented by educating parents and concerned people about the existence of Paediatric Surgery Specialty.
The Department of Paediatrics Surgery has played a significant role in the comprehensive treatment of all operative and non-operative paediatrics surgical problems. In SDM medical hospital this department was started in 2009 and till date about 6000 surgeries have been done including various difficult and complicated surgeries. The youngest baby operated in our hospital was of 10min old. We were also successful in operating a 900gm baby with a major congenital anomaly.
In our hospital, the surgeons and the nurses in the Department of Paediatrics Surgery are specially trained in surgical care of neonates, infants and children. The Department works in conjunction with Dept. of Paediatrics and Anaesthesiology to provide comprehensive care to the neonate, infant and child.
All surgical conditions in children from birth are successfully managed using World Class Facilities. The department treats children who need surgery and is a tertiary referral centre for all the neonates and children with surgical problems for North Karnataka region. 
Following schemes are available in our hospital under which Paediatric surgeries are performed:
  • ESI
  • RBSK
  • Yashashwini
  • Arogya bhagya
  • Sampoorna suraksha
Treatment Facilities
Surgical procedures performed by the department include:

Td Booster Vaccination

Diphtheria and Tetanus Vaccination (called Td booster in USA)
  1. It is an occupational health welfare measure to protect all of us from Diphtheria and Tetanus.
  2. We had more than 5 cases of diphtheria among children aged between 5 yrs, 8 yrs etc; it was difficult to obtain ADS serum and also we had a fatality.
  3. The CDC, USA recommends Td booster vaccination to all adults above 19 yrs once every 10 years. Tetanus booster also will be unnecessary after injury for 5 years.
  4. It is a public health practice in the advanced countries to give an injection of Tdap to the grandparents before the grandchild born arrives at the home, in order that the elders may not carry the bacteria silently and infect the new born.

Thanks Letter
The staff and the students of SDM Medical College received the Td-booster Vaccination with great fervor. A total of 2500 vaccinations were done in record time (22nd,23rd and 26th, 27th  of September 2016).
We, the staff and students are exceptionally thankful for the gesture of our Medical Director Dr.Niranjan Kumar.
We are grateful for the concern and care bestowed by the Medical Director towards the staff, the students and the patients alike.
