Specialist Network offers a comprehensive range of paediatric surgical services, provided by the highly skilled Dr Richard Thompson who provides dedicated paediatric care to infants and children, ensuring their health and wellbeing.

Our paediatric surgical services encompass a wide range of modalities, including open, laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, and endoscopic procedures. These advanced techniques allow for minimally invasive surgical interventions, shorter recovery times, and reduced post-operative pain

Some of the common paediatric surgical procedures we perform at Specialist Network include the treatment of tongue tie and lip tie, antenatal counselling to expectant parents, neonatal surgery, umbilical hernia repairs in newborns and young children and surgical interventions associated with undescended testes and foreskin problems.

Additionally, we are equipped to handle emergency paediatric surgical cases promptly and efficiently, providing urgent care when children require surgical intervention due to conditions such as appendicitis, trauma, or abdominal emergencies.

Referrals can be sent through medical objects.
