History:

Established in 1968, this was the first Pediatric Surgery department in Mumbai and only the second in India. It was headed by Dr. Major Irani whose main emphasis was on the development of the infrastructure and a different stream from general surgery. Today's department is fruit of his hard work and persistent efforts. Dr. V. C. Talwalkar took over from him. He was firm believer in the social approach of the pediatric surgery. With all different congenital malformation and its social problems in Indian community it was treated as a social disease. With his disciplined approach the department established itself. International recognition of the department came during tenure of Dr. Mrs. Jyotsna Kirtane. Her 15 year carrier as head saw many international faculties like Dr. Ransley, Dr. Kyle and others coming to the department for various pediatric surgery and pediatric urology workshops. She herself went abroad and brought a western look & approach to the department. With her sustained efforts we had a new state of art OT, NICU, PICU and surgical instruments. Japanese Government donated many instruments, machineries' which still are in use. At present Dr. N. P. Dhende is heading the department. With his enthusiasm and guidance from Dr. Shivaji B Mane department is scaling a new height. Because of his special interest in Laparoscopy, it's been done more frequently. Residents are being trained in basic as well as advanced laparoscopic procedures. International publications, papers and national presentation have become a routine. Department is getting a futuristic vision because of their attitude.
