Since there is a maternity service at both Cecilia Makiwane as well as Frere Hospital we receive many newborns with a variety if congenital abnormalities. Both hospitals have a neonatal & paediatric intensive care unit with facilities for advanced life support.
This makes it possible for the surgeons to take on even the most complex cases such as the following:
Gastroschisis / Exomphalos
Esophageal Atresia & Tracheo-esophageal fistula
Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia
Small Bowel and Duodenal Atresia
Omphalomesenteric Duct abnormalities
