Our paediatric out-patient department is for children and their families. We operate six days a week for appointments with specialist paediatricians and have a comfortable seating. Our fast referral service means an appointment can be arranged with a paediatrician the same day. This model provides primary preventive paediatric care which addresses areas of well-baby check-ups, immunizations, developmental assessments, nutritional assessments, healthy life style and proper physical activities. If, following examination, your child needs to be admitted to the hospital, this can happen straight away.Common conditions we treat include:
If you have an infant, remember that while spitting up may be an everyday occurrence for your baby, vomiting is not. Babies vomit for a variety of reasons, many of which may require medical attention.
Call your baby's doctor right away if your baby:
Some forms of hypospadias are very minor and do not require surgery. However, treatment usually involves surgery to reposition the urethral opening and, if necessary, straighten the shaft of the penis. Surgery is usually done between the ages of 6 and 12 months.
If the penis looks abnormal, circumcision should not be done. If hypospadias is found during circumcision, the procedure should be completed. In either case, referral to a paediatric urologist is recommended.
Most forms of hypospadias can be corrected in a single surgery that's done on an outpatient basis. Some forms of hypospadias will require more than one surgery to correct the defect.
When the urethral opening is near the base of the penis, the surgeon may need to use tissue grafts from the foreskin or from the inside of the mouth to reconstruct the urinary channel in the proper position, correcting the hypospadias.
