      Activities

      The pediatric surgery unit encompasses several specialties. It includes a 22-bed unit for traditional hospitalization as well as a 7-bed unit for outpatient hospitalization . The service has 4 carts to take the children to the operating room.

      The proximity of the technical platform to the neonatal and pediatric resuscitation departments, pediatric anesthesia, high-performance medical imaging equipment, as well as to pediatric emergencies, make it a sector adapted to the care path of young patients.

      Several surgical specialties are supported
      • orthopedic and trauma surgery
      • visceral, thoracic and urological surgery
      • neurosurgery
      • ENT
      • ophthalmology
      • maxillofacial surgery

      The manager of the conventional hospitalization unit is Ms. Florence Godin. The team includes 9 childcare nurses and 7 childcare assistants/caregivers. A pediatrician is present in this service to take care of children's pain in an optimal way, accompanied by a specialized pediatric nurse. During hospitalizations, school monitoring is provided by a teacher in an internal classroom in the surgery department. The department has a games room open to the presence of educators. Sometimes, an educator accompanies the children to the operating room.

      Visits are permanently authorized for parents, and limited to 2 people per child. Only one parent has the possibility of staying with their child at night, due to the conformation of the rooms.

      The department is also at the forefront of minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy, thoracoscopy) as well as pediatric robotic surgery and urological endoscopic surgery.

      • genital pathologies ( hypospadias, testicular ectopia, variation in sexual development, uterine and vaginal abnormality, etc.) ,
      • pediatric visceral pathologies ( Crohn's disease, hemorrhagic recto colitis, gastroesophageal reflux, Hirschsprung's disease, inguinal hernia, etc.) ,
      • neonatal surgery ( sacrococcygeal teratoma, persistent arterial duct, laparoschisis, diaphragmatic hernia, enterocolitis, etc.) ,
      • congenital malformation pathologies ( oesophageal atresia, ano-rectal malformation, pulmonary malformation, etc.) ,
      • thoracic pathologies ( lung malformations of perinatal diagnosis, thoracic deformities in young people and adolescents),
      • pediatric tumor pathologies ( neuroblastoma, nephroblastoma, etc.) ,
      • pediatric gynecological pathologies ,
      • pathologies linked to obesity .
      • Prenatal diagnosis pathologies

      In Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery

      The pediatric orthopedic surgery department is called upon to take care of many pathologies:

      • traumatological pathologies ( bone fractures) ,
      • bone and joint infections ,
      • malformative bone pathologies ( syndactylies, equine clubfoot varus, etc.) ,
      • spinal pathologies ( scoliosis, hemi-vertebrae, etc.) ,
      • bone tumor pathologies ( osteosarcomas, exostotic diseases, etc.) ,
      • pathologies affecting people with multiple disabilities .

      These different pathologies are encountered during treatment in the emergency room or through specialist consultation. The pediatric orthopedic surgeon may also meet with families in the context of antenatal diagnoses of malformative bone pathologies (limb abnormalities for example) .
