Utilising latest technology

  • PET Scan

    Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a non-invasive functional imaging scan conducted to provide detailed images of the child’s body. It is carried out to show certain metabolic changes and physiologic uptake, to help analyse how well the child’s tissues and organs are functioning.

  • 3.0 Tesla MRI

    Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI) is a scanning process that produces accurate and comprehensive images of the child’s body using a magnetic field, radio waves and a computer. The scan is helpful in imaging infants and small children with varying body sizes.

  • IMRT

    Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is an advanced radiation therapy performed to treat cancerous and noncancerous tumours in children. It uses linear accelerator technology to safely deliver accurate radiation doses to the child’s tumour, avoiding or minimising exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.

  • MEG

    Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a neuro-imaging test to study and record the child’s brain activities and epileptic seizures. The test is carried out to identify the root cause of seizures by producing a magnetic source image. It is generally conducted with EEG at the same time.

  • VCUG

    A Voiding Cystourethrogram (VCUG), is a test that uses fluoroscopy, a particular X-ray technology to visualise and evaluate the child’s urinary tract and bladder. A VCUG checks for urinary reflux, a condition that is quite common among children. The test may also help determine the reason of recurring urinary tract infections, and check any blockages or abnormalities of the urethra.

  • Cogenital Heart Surgery

    Congenital heart surgery treats or fixes a heart defect that is present at birth. The holes in the heart need to be repaired in infancy or early childhood by certain treatment options, like catheter procedure or open-heart surgery. It is advised to perform the surgery if the heart defect could harm the child’s long-term health or wellness.

  • Liver Transplant

    Liver transplantation is the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver of another person. It is considered when liver ceases to function appropriately. The surgical procedure has been successful in treating children with acute and chronic liver disease.

    Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is a procedure to transfer a healthy kidney from a live or departed donor into a person who has negligible or no kidney function. At Medanta, we have been successful in treating infants and children with certain kidney disorders, by successfully conducting incompatible kidney transplant.

  • Bone Marrow Transplant

    The Bone Marrow transplant or Stem Cell transplant is a surgery done to replace a child’s damaged bone marrow cells with healthy bone marrow stem cells.  The flexible tissue inside our bones is called bone marrow, wherein stem cells are present. It is an effective procedure to treat different kind of cancers, such as Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Neuroblastoma in children.

  • Laser Ablation Surgery

    Laser Ablation Surgery is a procedure to destroy lesions and other tumours in the brain. For high-risk children with epilepsy and deep brain lesions, this technique uses light to destroy unwanted cells.

  • ECMO

    Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving treatment performed for patients with serious heart and/or lung problems. This surgical intervention delivers long-term breathing and heart support and has mostly been used on infants, children and adolescents. 

  • Scoliosis Surgery

    Scoliosis surgery is considered when the ailment continues to get worse and bracing is not working out for the child. Primary goals of the surgery are to stop the curve’s progression and reduce the deformity.

  • ACL Surgery

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery is the replacement or reconstruction of ACL, located in the knee, by using graft to restore its function after an injury. It is usually carried out by making small incisions in the knee of a child and then introducing certain instruments through these incisions. The number of ACL injuries in children are seen increasing, due to more sports participation.
