[Editorial] Pushing the boundaries in paediatric surgery

Aside from the difficult psychosocial aspects of illness in babies and children, paediatric surgery and paediatric surgical research face inimitable challenges. These include the consequences of anaesthesia and radiation exposure in children, the implications of long-term complications, and, in many cases, the necessity of long-term care despite the inevitability of a transition to adult services. Diseases requiring paediatric surgery are sometimes rare and heterogenous in nature, with complex cases requiring multidisciplinary management.
