National Pediatric Surgery Day celebrated at SGRH

New Delhi, December 29, 2022:

The Department of Pediatric Surgery at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, is celebrating “National Pediatric Surgery Day”. This event was held in the hospital Auditorium and inaugurated by Dr. Jayashree Sood, Secretary, Board of Management. It was attended by general public and the parents of children undergoing treatment at our hospital and all departmental staff members including Dr. Rajeev Kulshreshtha, Dr. Satish Aggarwal and Dr. Alpana Prasad.

An interactive session was organized to  highlight the role played by Pediatric Surgeons in maintaining the health and wellness of children and to increase awareness about Pediatric Surgery in general amongst public and medical colleagues. Public and parents were informed that a Pediatric surgeon is the best and safest option for their child’s surgery. The safety of surgery and anesthesia even in newborn babies was stressed and excellent long-term outcomes of surgery in most of the surgically correctable congenital and acquired surgical conditions in children was highlighted. Information about availability of newborn health insurance was provided so that people can avail medical-insurance for congenital conditions too which has so far been denied by majority of health insurance providers. 


It was on this day that the Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons (IAPS) was formed in the year 1965 and hence to commemorate it, this public awareness program has been organized by department of Pediatric Surgery. We also take this opportunity to thank our patients and their families who have trusted the care of their children to us. Sir Ganga Ram Hospital takes pride in being one of the best Pediatric hospital in the country providing excellent, affordable and high quality surgical care to newborn babies, infants, children and adolescents, from birth to 18 years age.
