Excellency in Paediatric Care

Paediatric Surgery

Paediatric Surgery is the Medical-Surgical Speciality of Hospital da Luz Coimbra that performs Diagnostics and Treatments of pathology and may also perform surgical interventions during infancy. Its scope encompasses all aspects of Surgery, that correspond to Paediatrics.

Surgical problems in children are, frequently, quite different than the ones found in adults, therefore, the specialized Experience and Knowledge of Paediatric Surgeons at Hospital da Luz Coimbra are fundamental in order to provide the specific care Patients need during childhood. It is crucial to provide an environment at the office that is adapted to the child, with appropriate decorations, and mainly to have an approach that is adequate to their age group.

Experience and Dedication

Hospital da Luz Coimbra has a team of experienced Paediatric Surgeons that, in conjunction with the remaining specialities, provide the best Surgical Care.
