Followed as a religious obligation, male circumcision is the most common surgical procedure carried out not only in Pakistan but worldwide. Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin. The foreskin usually covers the tip of penis, and it separates, retracts, or is pulled back over time. Usually, a baby is circumcised within the first week of birth. However, adults may also have the surgery in some rare cases.
During the circumcision surgery, the surgeon separates the foreskin from the penis and removes it with a scalpel. Then, he applies the ointment and covers the penis in gauze for recovery.
Benefits of Circumcision
Circumcision is the most critical of all the services for paeds due to the following benefits.
Who cannot get the surgery?
We ensure sterile equipment for our services for paeds in a hygienic environment. The surgery ends within 20 minutes, and the wound takes around eight to ten days to heal. You may observe swelling and redness of the penis and a yellow film around the tip, which is normal.
Ideally, the inguinal canal closes soon after the birth of the baby. A closed canal keeps the testis from going back up into the abdomen. However, if the canal fails to close properly, a part of the intestine may get into the canal through the weak abdominal wall. It appears as a bulge or swelling near the groin area on the outer side and is known as an inguinal hernia.
Typically, hernias in newborn children are not painful, and they show only when the infant or an older child cries, coughs or strains during the bowel movement. However, in some cases, the patient may also exhibit reduced appetite. Hence, it can only be observed by the caretaker. If it is not diagnosed in time, the contents of the hernia, i.e. a part of the intestine, may get trapped in the abdominal wall and may lead to life-threatening conditions. In addition, the symptoms may aggravate the following in such a condition.

ALSA Pakistan offers the best promising solution for pediatric hernia treatment in its services for paeds. Therefore, whatever your baby's condition is, we offer a state-of-the-art facility for pediatric surgery. Common pediatric surgeries for inguinal hernia mean an open surgery that makes a large 1-3 cm incision. However, the pediatric surgeon at ALSA Pakistan treats it laparoscopically and makes three minimal incisions of only 1-3 mm, which heals quick.
Compared to open surgery, the laparoscopic pediatric hernia treatment recovers within 1-2 weeks.
Also known as cryptorchidism, it is a condition where the testicles don’t get to their proper position in the scrotum vi behind the penis through the inguinal canal before birth. Usually, the testicles move into their proper positions within a few months after birth. Undescended testis is more familiar with premature babies. Usually, only one testis is affected with such a condition. However, in 10% of the cases, both testes fail to descend to their position.
There are no medical conditions related to the undescended testis. However, it can only be observed if the testicle is not in the scrotum as it should have been.
If not treated, the undescended testis may result in testicular cancer, fertility problems, inguinal hernia, trauma, testicular torsion etc. Hence, Dr Muhammad Mohsin offers his reliable services for paeds and offer the best pediatric surgery for your child. First, the surgeon gives the child general anesthesia. Then, during laparoscopic undescended testicles surgery, the surgeon inserts a laparoscope to locate testes. Then, he manipulates the testis back into the scrotum and stitches it back into its place.
The recovery from undescended testicles surgery is pretty fast, especially if it is laparoscopic surgery within 2 to 3 days. There might be slight swelling, pain or bruises in the groin. Therefore, this is just not it. Our well-concerned surgeon continues to monitor the patient, including the following:

If you evidence blood in your child’s stool, the pediatric department at ALSA Pakistan must be your first go-to place. The leading cause for the blood in the stool may be rectal polyps. Polyps are the accumulation of cells in the large intestine. Approximately 1-2% of the infants suffer from an inherited disorder from the parents or a mutation. The main risk of polyps is that they may develop into cancer. Therefore, if you observe the following symptoms, you must get the top-rated rectal polyps treatment.
Usually, polyps are not a risk to the baby's general health, and they do exhibit any observable symptoms. However, it is the best if you are wary be of the following symptoms;
Generally, polypectomy is a minor surgery, especially when done laparoscopically. Therefore, the risks are very low. However, the patient may suffer from bleeding right after the surgery. Conventionally, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks for the child to heal and get back to the routine. However, if you choose to get the laparoscopic services for paeds, the recovery time may reduce to just some days.
To abide by our promise of taking care of your child, we send the polyp samples to check if the polyp is cancerous or not. If not, you are all set for a healthy digestive system!

Around 80% of the hypospadias patients have distal hypospadias in which the urethra is near the end of the penis. Moreover, 15% of these patients have a curved penis downward. Usually, it is diagnosed during the physical exam. However, you must get to the best hypospadias surgery treatment if it has already been late.
