About Our Pediatric Services
Who are Pediatricians?
One of the most important branches of medicine is pediatrics as it deals with the medical attention of infants, children, and adolescents. Children under 3 years are not simply miniature adults, and their bodies always undergo developmental changes, and the healthcare they need are very different from those of adults. For these reasons, it is very helpful to have a specific doctor looking after your child’s medical needs. Pediatricians are doctors that specialize in providing treatment to the unique health care needs of people from birth to 20 years of age. Pediatrics are specifically trained to find out and treat childhood injuries and illnesses and help healthy children and teenagers stay well. As young people’s emotions and minds are developing at the same time as their bodies, pediatricians know well that they must pay attention to the whole child.
What does a Pediatrician do?
The main reason for most of the people to consult pediatricians is to take care of their child by having routine physical exams. As a parent, you will find yourself bringing your son/daughter to the doctor for many immunizations. Pediatricians generally focus on the emotional, physical and social health of toddlers, children, adolescents, and young adults up to age 20 years. They are highly trained in detecting, analyzing, preventing, and managing issues that affect children.
Reasons to see a Pediatrician
If you have already established a relationship with a pediatrician prior to your baby birth, then the first time that the pediatrician will see your child is at their birth. Later, you’ll take your child to the pediatrician for immunizations and regular check-ups, as well as for any health problems, until they reach adulthood.
At Amma children hospital, our pediatricians with integrated healthcare division aim to provide your child with a caring and compassionate environment, including an extensive range of inpatient pediatric facilities and specialized critical care.
