Children's anatomy is different from adults, so surgical treatments require a special department. Pediatric surgery is concerned with the surgical treatment of infants, children and adolescents between the age of 0-16. Even minor surgical treatments , which seem to be quite insignificant with children, can cause physiological and psychological trauma if it is not performed correctly.

Some common pediatric surgery diseases are

  • Inguinal hernia
  • Cord Cyst
  • Circumcision
  • Undescended testis
  • Water hernia
  • Umbilical hernia
  • Micropenis
  • Infantile pyloric stenosis
  • Appendicitis in children
  • Constipation and Fecal Incontinence in Children
  • Umbilical polyp and granuloma
  • Urinary incontinence problems
  • Acute scrotum
  • Rectal Bleeding

These fields may vary according to diagnosis and treatment;

Inguinal Hernia

It is the most common surgical procedure in childhood. The incidence rate is 1-3% in newborns and 16-25% in premature babies. It is common 3-10 times more with boys than girls. The typical symptom is swelling in the inguinal region. Although it is not a genetic disorder, there could be a (5-20%) hernia history with family members. Tumors that cause fluid accumulation or increased intra-abdominal pressure, or long-lasting cough attacks can cause an inguinal hernia.

Surgical treatment is the only treatment. The inguinal hernia should be operated on after diagnosis. It can be treated at any age. If there is not any impeding condition for the treatment, the operation can be done even with newborn babies. It is not possible to heal spontaneously or pharmacotherapy.

Urinary İncontinence Problems

Generally, at the age of 2-4 years, most children can control defecation and urine due to toilet training and the development of bladder capacity. Sleepwetting at night is often the result of delayed bladder development, so its frequency will lower with age.

Although 40% of the three-year-olds have sleep wetting issues, this rate drops to 20% at the age of 5 and 10% at the age of 6. The frequency of sleep wetting with boys is higher than with girls. Families face this problem with their children between the age of 5-6 and 7-8, if the problem still occurs, they get medical advice from the doctors. In our country, it is reported that 16% of 7-11-year-old boys and 11% of girls have sleep wetting issues.

The causes of this problem can be both physiological and psychological. The solutions such as restriction in liquid consumption and avoiding carbonated drinks do not resolve the problem, you should get a doctor's advice to learn if there is any other underlying causes. Urinary tract infections, chronic constipation, sleeping issues or hyper stress can cause urinary incontinence.
