  Department of Paediatric Surgery




Pediatric surgery is relatively a new specialty in Pakistan which has grown rather quickly in the country over the recent years. There are only 13 hospitals in the public sector with a dedicated department for pediatric surgery. Established in 1986, the Department of Pediatric Surgery at Children Hospital PIMS is one of the leading units of the country in this field. The department has progressed steadily since its establishment to its present form. It is one of the busy departments of PIMS comprising of 54 bed surgical wards with additional beds in PICU, NICU and separate specialty beds. All kids of pediatric surgical cases including both elective and emergency are handled at the department. These include cases of general pedantic surgery, neonatal surgery, pediatric urology, orthopedic, plastic surgery and neurosurgery. The Children Hospital in general, and the department of pediatric surgery in particular, cater to a large area north of Islamabad, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Jammu Kashmir, Northern Punjab and sometimes complicated cases from Afghanistan as well. The department is run under the visionary leadership of its Chairperson, Professor Dr Nadeem Akhtar. The department offers both FCPS and MS trainings to its aspiring students and is recognized by the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Pakistan (CPSP) and Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Medical University. There are 21 Post Graduate Trainees currently pursuing their FCPS and MS trainings. The department is also involved in research activities. More than 200 research papers have been published through the department in various national and international medical journals
