Pediatric Surgery can be defined as "the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases that require surgical operation, from prenatal abnormalities to postnatal diseases in children up to the age of 18".

Pediatric Surgeons begin working in their specialty after an average of six years of training. The human body, which constantly grows and develops in the process from the newborn period to adolescence, has different characteristics suitable for each period. Children need to be considered in a special way because of their physical and psychological differences depending on age. In the surgical application of children, the best results are obtained with teams of doctors and nurses specialized in the treatment of children, and especially in institutions organized for this purpose.
