Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that is designed to help treat infants, children, and adolescents, and deal with children until they turn 18, but sometimes this can extend until they turn 21. Pediatricians have the task of following the growth and development of children and providing them with necessary care and treatment. Depending on the specific age of your child or children, they can recommend certain tests and screening to rule out possible serious health issues and to make sure the child is meeting their designated milestones.

Pediatrics covers a lot of different medicinal fields, some of which include: 

  • Pediatric endocrinology
  • Neonatal medicine
  • Pediatric cardiology
  • Pediatric critical care
  • Pediatric hematology and many others.

Considering how they are responsible for the children’s physical and mental well-being, pediatric psychiatry and child abuse are important medicinal fields as well. Depending on the type of problem your child might have, your pediatrician might refer you to a specialist who can give a better insight into your child’s condition. In addition, they can run the necessary tests and screenings to detect possible complications and ensure proper treatment options.

Pediatricians take into account the differences in anatomy, physiology of the infant ,child and adolescent, and are specially trained to diagnose and treat children and adolescents and provide them with adequate care. Since the children’s small bodies are more delicate and can develop illnesses and conditions quicker, they need a doctor who can recognize this and act promptly.
