Pediatrics is the specialty of medicine that deals with the health and wellbeing and medical treatment of newborns, young children, and teenagers from the age of birth to the age of 18. The Greek words “pais” (meaning “child”) and “iatros” (meaning “doctor or healer”) are combined to form the word “paediatrics,” which means “healer of children.”
A paediatrician is a child’s doctor who provides preventative health services to healthy children as well as medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. A paediatrician controls the physical, psychological, and emotional health of the kids in their care at every stage of development, in good health as well as in illness. Pediatrics is concerned with the long-term implications on quality of life, disability, and survival in addition to the urgent therapy of the ill kid.
Injury, cancers, organ disorders and illnesses, infection, hereditary, and congenital problems are just a few of the conditions that pediatricians detect and treat in children.
