ABSTRACT: The Internet, which has truly united the developed and developing nations, is an extensive network of inter-linked computers storing immense bytes of information, which can be accessed by anyone transcending all geographical barriers. The pediatric surgery Internet consists of an exponentially growing information available on Internet that deals with information specially for pediatric surgeons and patients of pediatric age group. We reviewed the methods available to take advantage of this network. This will provide a glimpse to busy pediatric surgeons to accrue the benefits easily and efficiently rather than to be lost in the Information ocean by surfing individually. By getting connected to Internet, a pediatric surgeon in India, gains enormous information by interacting with other pediatric surgeon of the world. This could be of use to gain knowledge and to offer the best care to the patient. Internet has revolutionised scientific publication by virtue of its faster and accurate transmission of manuscripts. Pediatric surgeons can send the manuscripts by this channel and also access the journals obviating the inherent lag period of communication by post.
