From infancy to adolescence, pediatricians are key to ensuring the health and well-being of children, focusing on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of not only physical, but also mental, behavioral, and developmental disorders which affect youth and young adults.
Children’s physicians provide a broad range of health care services to children, including immunizations, routine health examinations, and treatment for a variety of minor conditions and injuries. Pediatricians, like family physicians or general practitioners, refer patients for further specialized care across the vast array of subspecialties within medicine.
A pediatrician deals with diseases and disorders that affect both children and adolescents, including infections, colds, fevers, genetic and congenital conditions, developmental disorders, behavioral problems, anxiety disorders, injuries, cancers, and diseases of the organs.
Pediatric surgeries might include an ear tube placement, appendectomy, pyloric stenosis repair, tonsillectomy, inguinal hernia repair, leg-lengthening, umbilical hernia repair, and club foot repair.
Pediatricians can specialize in a wide variety of areas, including pediatric cardiology, pediatric oncology, and pediatric endocrinology. Working with medical practitioners in the fields of ophthalmology, rheumatology, gynecology, anesthesiology, psychology, and neurology, to name a few, they can be found working in collaboration with them.
