A paediatrician is a medical expert with exceptional skills and training in the diseases and
illnesses that tend to affect the health and development of infants, children and teenagers.
Paediatricians have a vast knowledge of various ailments that can affect children’s health,
behaviour, welfare, as well as education. They also understand how different illnesses and
conditions relate to each other. Some paediatricians undergo general training while others
specialise in areas like neonatology which involves treatment of newborn babies along with
extensive newborn care. Other areas include cardiology (heart diseases) or development and
Why a Child Needs a Paediatrician?
Some of the reasons why a person should prefer a paediatrician over a family doctor are:
Paediatricians have special training in children’s health.
Since they only deal with children in their practice, they tend to have a lot of experience
in recognising as well as treating childhood illnesses.
If a child is born early or has a health condition that requires close monitoring, a
paediatrician can offer more specialised care as compared to a family doctor.
