The Division of Surgery at The Royal Children's Hospital
provides the full spectrum of paediatric surgical services for
infants, children and adolescents.
About 10,000 children undergo surgery at the RCH each year, and
all of them are cared for in the RCH Surgery area - a
self-contained unit that cares for children of all ages requiring
elective or emergency operations. As well as treating existing

caters for children to be admitted, have an operation, and be
discharged within the same day.
