Pediatric Surgery in Turkey, Best Prices and Clinics

What is Pediatrics ?

Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that diagnoses and treats diseases in fetuses, infants, children and adolescents. Most infant diseases are caused by genetic or chromosomal problems and exposure to medications or chemicals during pregnancy.

Birth defects are a common reason for physical and mental disabilities in childen. Many of these prenatal diseases can be detected by screening tests. If you are pregnant, then consider visiting a genetic counselor.

What is Pediatric Surgery

Pediatric surgery is a branch of general surgery. It treats health problems with body parts such as the lungs, belly and chest. The person who practices this profession is called a "pediatric surgeon". He is specially trained to fix birth defects in new-born babies.

So, if you have a baby with a birth defect, you have to consult a pediatric surgeon in the first place.

Children on the other hand tend to play a lot, that’s why they are more exposed to traumas and risks such as back injuries and car accidents. These accidents can be mild or severe. Sometimes they may cause permanent functional or structural defects.


Birth Defects in Babies

 Birth defects are congenital changes (present at birth) that can affect one or more body part (e.g., heart, chest, brain). They are a common condition in 1 in every 33 babies. Birth defects include 2 major categories :

Functional Defects

They affect how the body functions and include 

Learning Disabilities 

  • Dyslexia: difficulties experienced when reading printed text;
  • Disgraphia: inability to produce written text due to a neurological disorder of the fine motor skills;
  • Mental retardation (Autism);
  • Speech difficulties: stuttering and articulation disorders.  All these are treated by pediatric surgery.

Structural Defects:

These abnormalities in babies affect the shape of a body part and how it looks. They include 

Belly Area Defects 

  • Appendicitis: belly pain and loss of appetite;
  • Inguinal hernias: a bulge in the groin.

Ear Defects 

This type of birth defect affects the shape of the ear. These include malformations of the child's ears, both internal and external. Common defects include :

  • Stahl's ear: causes the baby’s ears to point outwards, thus sticking out;
  • Ear tags: little bumps in front of the newborn baby’s ear.

More serious ear defects in babies include 

  • Anotia: total absence of the ear;
  • Microtia: a malformed and underdeveloped ear.

Pediatric surgery in such cases helps reshape the ear and give it a normal appearance.

Bladder Defects 

Urinary Tract Infection:a bacteria build-up in the urether.

This infection is the main cause of frequent urination, bedwetting and a burning sensation in the bladder. They are treated by pediatric urology.

Defects of the Facial Area 

These include Mouth Defects such as

  • Cleft palate (or cleft lip);
  • Ankyloglossia (tie-tongue).

This conditions is caused by a too tight lingual frenulum. This happens when the tongue's tip is tied to the floor of the mouth. This condition affects how a child pronounces words.

Down syndrome

Defects of the Feet

Clubfoot: a foot pointing inwards because of the insufficient lengh of achilles tendon.

Defects of the Genital Area

  • Cryptorchidism (undescended testes);
  • Hydroceles: swelling in the scrotum.

Respiratory and Airway Problems 

  • Croup: infection in the upper part of the neck that causes breathing difficulty and a harsh cough like that of a barking seal;
  • Strep throat: a sore throat combined with other symptoms such as : a runny nose, red eyes and hoarsness.

Neural Tube Defects (NSD)

These are defects of the brain, spine and spinal cord. They include

  • Spinal defects such as spina bifida, also called a split spine (a gap in the spine because the baby didn’t develop properly in the womb);
  • Microcephaly: smaller head size than is expected.

Defects of the Eyes 

  • Anophthalmia: a baby born without one or both eyes;
  • Microphthalmia: small eyes.

Heart defects

Risk Factors for Getting a Baby with a Birth Defect:

  • Family history;
  • Drinking alcohol or smoking during pregnancy;
  • Mothers who are over the age of 35 years;
  • Untreated bacterial infections;

How to Prevent Birth Defects?

Birth defects can be prevented by keeping a healthy lifestyle and eating foods rich in folic acid, such as: beans, peas and lentils.
