Surgical procedures are often very complicated and treatments can be highly technical and complex.

Many treatments carry some level of risk and most patients are warned of these risks before surgery.

However, sadly mistakes are made by many medical professionals resulting in pain, heartache and frustration for victims and their families alike.

Pediatrics is the area of medicine which specialists in the treatment of illness in Children.

Children can have illnesses that are not necessarily found in adults, including:

  • congenital and inherited diseases
