Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Paediatric Plastic Surgery

We provide a comprehensive range of general plastic surgery services for children and young people.

Specialist services for children

We also provide specialised services for issues such as: 

  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Burns
  • Congenital vascular anomalies
  • Congenital and acquired hand conditions.

Inpatient services within the Great North Children's Hospital

Children that have surgery and need to stay are cared for on Ward 11 of the Great North Children's Hospital.

Multidisciplinary care for our younger patients

As well as a wide range of surgery for specific conditions, our specialists also provide expert advice and guidance on managing complex chronic conditions such as arthrogryposis and cerebral palsy.

We therefore work in partnership with the Northern Genetic Service, based at the Centre for Life in Newcastle, and other colleagues, such as the Orthopaedic department, within the hospital, pooling our expertise to deliver high quality care and information for our child patients and their families.
