The surgery (Greek – the Craftsmanship) is the medical specialty that deals with the treatment of diseases and injuries by direct, manual or instrumental impact on the patient’s body (surgery) is concerned.
HistoryEven in the stone age and antiquity can be detected head-operations, which have survived the people. This can prove to the hand bones. Surgical procedures have been carried out by the Egyptians and Romans with tools that were designed specifically for the surgery. Little is known about the successes. Until the advent of academic medicine of bathrooms or surgeon has performed with technical training smaller operations.
Played an important role in the wars of the surgery. Because of the lack of knowledge about risks of infection, the instruments and the hands of the doctor were often not cleaned. The coats were then dark so you did not have to wash so often. The result was wound infections followed by blood poisoning (sepsis) and death
This slowly changed with the discovery of the cause of puerperal fever. An important role for the triumph of surgery played hygiene measures such as sterilization of medical instruments and materials and disinfection. Before the introduction of anesthesia (1846), the surgery had to work as quickly as possible because of the high pain for the patient. Deaths from pain (shock) were not uncommon. Sir Robert Liston (1798-1847) amputated out of habit despite anesthesia inserted for the first time on 21 December 1846 a leg in 28 seconds!
one of the branches of surgery. But it is indeed a fascinating area of pediatric medicine, covering a wide spectrum of diseases of different organ systems of the child. Respect, pediatric surgeons are considered the last generalists among surgeons.
This is liberty, that the individual pediatric surgeon clinically and scientifically generally focused on specific areas of work, so as to achieve the highest level of expertise.
Why do children need surgery?
Conditions and needs of sick children are fundamentally different from those of adults.
Children’s Surgical diseases occur in all stages of development of the child. Even the fetus in the womb can have malformations or tumors that require the urgent surgical action. The difficult birth is associated with trauma in the worst case.
During the extrauterine development internal or external factors that may lead to surgical disease act.
Ultimately treat pediatric surgeons in close cooperation with pediatricians diseases of newborns, infants and school children to adolescents. Just like the adult or old age each of these ages has physiological and psychological development features, which account shall be taken. Children therefore surgical thought and action includes the prevention, detection, prevention, conservative or operative treatment, aftercare and rehabilitation of deformities, diseases, infections, solid tumors and injury to the child.
We treat in our pediatric surgical consultation infants, toddlers, kindergarten and school children and young people up to 18 of age. The supply of emergency, acute pain, kindergarten and school accidents has always priority.
The practice is approved by the BG accident insurance for the special treatment of kindergarten and school accidents. For further diagnostics we have ultrasound, a modern digital X-ray system and a urine-unit, so that eg observed in abdominal pain and urinary tract ultrasound in a suspected fracture using an X-ray or by wetting the urinary stream gauge the diagnosis and immediate treatment can be carried out.
Outpatient surgery provide the main focus of our treatment spectrum represents the anesthetics are performed by a team of highly experienced pediatric anesthesiologists. We also conduct minor procedures, if permitted by the age of the child, of course, under local anesthesia.
deals with the conservative and surgical methods for the restoration and preservation of structures damaged by accidents (organs and musculoskeletal system) in humans.
Injuries affect primarily the musculoskeletal system (the bony skeleton, muscles, ligaments and tendons), but also abdominal and thoracic organs, and the brain and spinal cord.
Due to the similarity of the treatment process trauma surgeons also treat fractures that are caused by a malignancy, ie pathological fractures. After our self-understanding, the accident surgeon sees as an attorney of the injured and is in accordance with the consequences of accidents on all parts of the body in patients of any age and at any time after an accident apart. Thus, the idea of a coordinated treatment is realized by a hand.
