Department of Pediatric Surgical Superspecialties

A Message from HoD

We, the Pediatric Surgery team at SGPGIMS, believe in taking up challenges and strive to deliver our best in terms of knowledge, skill & infrastructural support.
The department has a rich clinical experience with all subspecialties of Pediatric Surgery namely: Hepatobiliary & Gastrointestinal Surgery, Oncosurgery, Urology, Thoracic surgery, Neurosurgery, Neonatal surgery and Pediatric Endoscopic surgery.
Our biggest strength has been our clinical & academic experience with a challenging spectrum of Paediatric Biliary, liver, pancreatic, luminal Gastrointestinal Surgery & Surgery for Gastrointestinal bleed. We are a high volume national referral centre for the same.
We value children as the biggest asset of the society-being instrumental in their healing is our privilege and our humble service to mankind.
Our endeavour is to treat every “unwell” baby with a meticulously planned, carefully monitored, evidence based management protocol. The emphasis is on personalized compassionate care from the entire team & on continued support & long term follow up to optimize quality of life. To improve patient outcomes, other domains of emphasis are: “patient safety”, nursing education, clinical nutrition and strong interdisciplinary coordination with allied specialties.

Every trainee is nurtured professionally & valued as a member of the team & departmental family-to watch them “carry the torch forward” is our deepest joy & pride.We strive to grow in the learning process everyday so that we can serve our patients better.

Reflections of one of our Alumni who was a part of our team as a Post Doctoral Fellow in Pediatric Surgical Gastroenterology)
Hi ,
This is Dr Kishore JS. SGPGI being a renowned tertiary care referral centre attracts a lot of complex cases. The one year I spent for my Post Doctoral Fellowship in Department of Pediatric Surgery has boosted my confidence to handle complex surgical cases besides giving a TAG of fellowship from a premier institute. The pace of teaching, training and work is apt to facilitate thorough learning of each case. Interdepartmental support is noteworthy. The work atmosphere is conducive , faculty are co-operative and pay is good. Just as we say, “where there is a will, there is a way”; If you have ‘will to learn , I think SGPGI is the way to go”.
