He was involved in teaching MIS to trainee surgeons at the Royal College of Surgeons in London and is now actively teaching the same in Malaysia as part of a masters program in Paediatric Surgery.
Dr. Nada provides a wide assortment of paediatric surgery services for various conditions that include lung and chest anomalies, congenital defects, hyperhidrosis, and childhood tumor surgery. Majority of his operations are performed using Laparoscopic Surgery to lessen the amount of pain that his patients have to endure and significantly reduce the length of time required in the recovery process.
Dr. Nada Paediatric Surgery Clinic, which is located at the Prince Court Medical Center, offers a wide range of paediatric surgery services including reconstructive surgery for congenital malformations, surgery for emergency conditions, and surgery for conditions involving the chest and lungs.
Alimentary Canal Surgery
Anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung disease are birth defects that affect a part of the large intestine, causing problems with passing stool. While the latter is characterized by missing nerve cells in the muscle of the colon, the former is a condition where both the anus and the rectum did not develop properly. These are corrected through a surgical procedure called alimentary canal surgery that is offered at Dr. Nada’s Paediatric Surgery Clinic in Kuala Lumpur. The procedure, which is performed under general anesthesia, involves the removal of the diseased portion of the colon before reconnecting the remaining healthy part to the anus. This surgical procedure requires a hospital stay that can last from one to two weeks.
Congenital Lung Anomaly Treatment
Congenital lung anomaly is an umbrella term covering a broad range of lung problems including lung malformation and the presence of cysts in the area that typically cause problems in the airways. These days, correction of congenital lung anomalies involves laparoscopic thoracic procedure. Dr. Nadarajan Sudhakaran specializes in this procedure and recommends it as soon as the child is diagnosed with congenital lung problem. Patient will be required to stay in the hospital for two weeks, which may include ICU stay.
Hypospadias is a congenital defect wherein the urethral meatus is located underneath the penis instead on the tip. Typically diagnosed during the initial newborn physical examination, this condition requires immediate surgery. Correction of this condition can take many forms based on the severity of the deformity. These may include reconstructing the skin around the urethral opening, repositioning the urethra, or correcting the position of urethral opening. The surgery may require tissue grafts, which are typically obtained from the patient’s mouth or foreskin. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and can take up to three hours. It requires at least four-night hospital stay and a follow-up after two weeks.
