Endoscopy is derived form the Greek words endo, meaning ‘within’ and skopeo meaning ‘to look’, or ‘to view’. Endoscopy techniques allow us to look inside the body and enable us to form a reliable diagnosis. Over the years, pediatric endoscopy has developed rapidly into a highly sophisticated procedure allowing both diagnostic and therapeutic benefits to everyone.
Pediatric surgical endoscopy encompasses broad spectrum of practice, including rigid and flexible endoscopy of the airway, thorax, abdomen, gastrointestinal tract, and genitourinary tract. All neonatal and pediatric endoscopies like oesophagoscopy, gastroscopy, laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, cystourethroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy are routinely carried out at our centre.
The field of Minimally Invasive Surgery or Minimally Access Surgery (MAS) as it is commonly known has grown remarkably over the past 2 decades. The imaginations and creativity of pediatric surgeons worldwide has lead to a broad array or surgeries that can now be performed without large incisions. It has shorter hospital stays, less analgesic requirement after surgery, more rapid return to school and cosmetic satisfaction. MAS has a great impact on the way we manage pediatric surgical problems today.
A major advantage is that MAS is therapeutic for most of its indications hence bringing about a significant reduction in the morbidity of the procedure. MAS has been divided into laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, mediastinoscopy, retroperitoneoscopy and ventriculoscopy according to the body compartment in which it has been used.
