Challenges in Neonatal Surgery


KCL Anatomy and Paediatric Societies are excited to present our joint event – “Challenges in Neonatal Surgery”.

Speakers: David Drake and Manasvi Upadhyaya, Paediatric Surgeons, Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

When: 5:30pm- Thursday, 28th November 2013

Where: Anatomy Lecture Theatre, Hodgkin Building, Guy’s Campus, KCL

What: “When babies are born with life-threatening anatomical anomalies, their treatment often includes major surgery. This requires the support of specialist anaesthesia and intensive medical and nursing care. The speakers will give an historical perspective on the development of the current managements for oesophageal atresia and diaphragmatic hernia, including antenatal diagnosis, fetal intervention, postnatal presentation and surgical care. The last 75 years have seen amazing progress and there are new developments which may soon be introduced into clinical practice.”

Entry is free for KCL Anatomy Society or Paediatric Society members and £1 for non-members. Memberships to either society can be purchased at the Spit, Guy’s Campus OR online at (click on Anatomy or Paediatrics under Medical section). Membership cards for paid members of the Anatomy Society can be picked up at the event as well.

The event will be followed by a complimentary wine reception (non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be provided) so please come to enjoy a fun and educational night!
