Paediatricians are specially trained medical doctors who work with babies, infants, adolescents, and young adults. Children experience rapid physical, emotional, and behavioural changes as they grow up. Children and teenagers have unique medical needs that might fall outside the expertise of doctors who primarily treat adults.

How can paediatricians help you?

Parents may bring their child to a paediatrician for a regular scheduled examination or as the result of a complaint, such as injury or illness. The paediatrician may weigh and measure the child; look into the eyes, ears, nose, and throat; listen to the lungs and heartbeat, and ask general questions about the child’s health. A paediatrician may check for such common growth issues, such as joint misalignments. The paediatrician may order such additional tests as X rays or urine samples.

The paediatrician must be versed in treating childhood injuries and illnesses. A number of infections are more common among children than adults. Children are also prone to such injuries as sprains and broken bones. Paediatricians often prescribe such medicines as antibiotics and painkillers. They are also responsible for administering regular immunizations that help prevent disease. The paediatrician may refer the child to a specialist for more serious issues or ones requiring highly specialized care.
