Special Services
These services are considered specialized since they require special training, special skills & special interest to give good results in these cases. Dr Sekharam is the referral center from across the country for many complex operations in children. A few such examples are

  • Hypospadias repair & Epispadias repair (complex reconstructive operations on the genitalia)

  • Laparoscopic surgery of Undescended testis

  • Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty (an operation to relieve kidney obstruction). Dr Sekharam has the country's largest number of Lap Pyeloplasties in children & possibly the world's largest number of these operations in infants.

  • Cystoscopic Injection of Deflux for correction of Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR)

Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) in Children
Traditionally, Surgery involved making large cuts over the abdomen or chest to enter into these cavities & operate on the internal organs. Obviously, this type of surgery was associated with a lot of pain & discomfort to the child. The wounds took a long time to heal during which period the child could not move or play. Finally, the large, ugly scars resulted in psychologic issus & poor body image for the child.
Minimal Access Surgery (MAS, otherwise called 'Keyhole surgery') has revolutionalized both adult & pediatric surgery in the new millennium. Here, the same operations are performed by inserting small (3 to 5 millimeter size) instruments into body cavities either thru natural body orifices or thru tiny holes made on the chest or abdomen. A small but powerful telescope shows a magnified view of the internal organs (10-15 times magnified) projected on to a screen. The operation is carried out by small, delicate, special instruments. The advantages of MAS are 

  • Magnified view during surgery, hence more accurate surgery (especially in babies & children where the organs are very small)

  • Minimal postoperative pain only

  • Early recovery, early feeding

  • Early return to full activity & early discharge

  • The most minimal scar

  • Greatly reduced chance of wound complications (like infection & wound breakdown which are common in open surgery)

  • Less of post-operative adhesions

  • Less long-term psychologic issues associated with scar
