Abstract Pediatric Surgery, though a super specialty does not enjoy the glamour and importance like other specialities, though, dealing with the most delicate of mankind, the children. The reasons for this are manifold and the results of this, brutal. This is a retrospective study carried at the major institutes of West Bengal where departments of pediatric surgery exist. We have observed a gross discrepancy between the number of patients admitted for surgically correctable congenital malformations and the standard state/national frequency of these disorders. We focus on the plight of a child not able to reach the level III health care system with a pediatric surgical back up and analyze the pros and cons with constructive criticism of the existing system.
