Pediatrics

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that focuses on infants, children and adolescents. Although the actual cutoff age is usually determined by the pediatrician and the patient, most pediatricians treat patients from birth to age 18. Because an infant and child's body is vastly different than an adult's and is still growing, pediatricians pay thorough attention to the possibilities of congenital defects, genetic variances and developmental issues.

Conditions treated include:

  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Behavioral and emotional disorders
  • Birth defects
  • Blood disorders
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Childhood cancers
  • Common childhood illnesses
  • Constipation
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive disorders
  • Down Syndrome
  • Ear, nose and throat disorders
  • Headaches
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neurological disorders
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Skin disorders
