While preparing for your baby’s arrival, the most important thing you need to do is to choose a doctor to oversee their health. While growing up, your child will experience rapid physical, emotional and behavioral changes. Children require unique medical care and attention that fall out of the expertise of doctors that treat adults. Here arises the need for child specialists, also known as pediatricians.
Pediatricians are doctors that manage physical, behavioral, and mental health care for children from birth until age 18. They are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of childhood diseases, from all minor to major health problems.
Everything You Need To Know About Pediatrics
What does a pediatrician do?
Your pediatrician will see your child from birth to age 1 to 21. He will likely see your child each year for annual checkups. He is also the first person to reach out every time your child gets sick. Following are the duties of a pediatrician:
- Perform physical exams
- Give immunizations
- Make sure your child has normal growth, development, and behavioral skills
- Diagnose and treat your child’s health problems like infections, injuries, and other illnesses
- Inform you about your child’s health and nutrition needs
- Provide emergency and critical care for children as and when required
Why Pediatrician is needed?
Pediatricians are highly trained and qualified specialists who are focused on ensuring your child’s best health. Pediatricians are required to:
- Determine a healthy life for your child
- Provide proper guidance to prevent illnesses and injuries in your child
- Provide early care of severe, long-term diseases and prevent their progress
- Avail intensive care for life-threatening conditions and complications
- Anticipate and address the various needs of your child as a newborn up to the age of 21
Conditions and Diseases we Treat
Our pediatricians provide child care from birth to 21 years of age and treat a range of diseases and injuries affecting children. Disease and conditions we treat, include:
Asthma & Allergy
Children may inherit the tendency to become allergic or asthmatic from their parents, but only some of them will develop active allergic diseases. Children develop allergies such as skin rashes, hay fever, or food allergies.
Asthma is a leading cause of emergency hospitalization in children. Our pediatric allergy/immunology team sees children with asthma or allergy. We provide detailed consultation and develop an individualized care plan for your child.
Cerebral palsy is a disorder that impairs a child’s ability to control body posture and movement. This disorder occurs due to damage to the developing brain after birth or during pregnancy.
Children with cerebral palsy are looked after by our pediatric neurology team which treats a broad range of nervous system disorders in children.
Children mostly develop type 1 diabetes, in which the immune system destroys the cells that produce insulin and the body can no longer produce insulin. Therefore, the only treatment option is insulin injections.
Our pediatric team works with nutritionists to provide quality care to diabetic patients. Our staff provides the tools for diabetic children to become self-sufficient in managing their diabetes into adulthood.
Down Syndrome and other genetic disorders
Down syndrome is a type of genetic disorder that causes lifelong physical and mental challenges along with learning disabilities in children. Children with Down Syndrome are looked after by our pediatric team who studies genetic disorders to prevent and cope with developmental disabilities, birth defects, and other conditions.
A seizure happens when your child experiences an abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
Symptoms of seizures include:
- Abnormalities of sensation or emotion
- Abnormal jerking of the muscles
- Lose consciousness
- Stare into space
Children with seizures are seen by our pediatric neurology team which focuses on the treatment of nervous system diseases.
Sickle Cell Disease
Sickle cell disease, also known as sickle cell anemia, is an inherited condition that affects hemoglobin within the red blood cells. This hemoglobin is called sickle hemoglobin (HbS) which leads to the formation of crescent or sickle-shaped cells which tend to clog small blood vessels.
This clogging can lead to the death of tissue, pain, and other severe complications. Our team of hematologists provides regular medical care for children affected by this disease.
