Gastrointestinal surgery refers to surgical procedures performed to treat problems of the gastrointestinal tract.

The GI tract includes the:

  • Mouth, esophagus (food tube), and stomach
  • Pancreas, liver, gallbladder, and bile ducts (biliary system)
  • The small intestine, large intestine (colon), and appendix
  • Rectum and anus

Following are two types of surgeries performed to treat pediatric gastrointestinal problems.

  1. Open surgery: In open surgery, the surgeon makes a large incision (cut) in the belly to reach the area to be treated. This type of surgery requires a hospital stay and can take several weeks to recover completely.
  2. Laparoscopic surgery: In laparoscopic surgery, the pediatric surgeon makes a small incision in the belly and inserts a thin, narrow tube containing a small camera and light (scope) and specialized tools. The scope sends pictures to a large television screen so that the surgeon can see the area to be treated. Few other small incisions are used to insert additional tools to help the surgeon work. No hospital stay is required for this type of surgery and recovery time is also low.

In both types of surgeries, anesthesia is used to help your child relax and sleep so that they don’t feel pain or remember the procedure.
