A surgeon in your corner.
The surgical emergencies presented in this article encompass the vast majority of the nontraumatic emergencies seen by a pediatric surgeon but represent only a small proportion of surgical disease in children. Most children seeking outpatient medical care do not need a surgeon, but those who do need one quickly. When one of the processes detailed above is suspected, it is always best to avail oneself of the opinion of a surgeon in a timely manner.
