Pediatrics & Pediatric surgery
Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery Abroad
Pediatrics is a branch of medicine dealing with health and medical care for babies, children and adolescents from birth under 18 years.
A pediatrician is a doctor who provides not only medical care for children with acute or chronic diseases, but also directs preventive medical measures aimed at preserving the health of children. A pediatrician controls the physical, mental and emotional well-being of children under his care at each stage of development.
Specializations in pediatrics:
- –Allergy and immunology
- –Children's cardiology
- –Infectious diseases
- –Intensive care medicine
- –Medicine for new-borns
One of the specialties of pediatrics is pediatric surgery
Children's surgeons diagnose and operate on children from infancy to adulthood.
Although many procedures and surgeries for children are identical to the treatment methods for adults, the features of the child’s body make such procedures more complex and difficult. Performing an open-heart surgery in an infant is not the same as performing an open-heart surgery in an adult.
Types of pediatric surgeons:
- –Digestive surgery
- –Fetal and neonatal surgery
- –Pediatric breast surgery
- –Pediatric general surgery
- –Pediatric oncological surgery
- –Pediatric plastic and maxillofacial surgery
- –Pediatric trauma surgery
- –Pediatric urological surgery
Children are not just little adults. They cannot always tell what concerns them and answer the doctor’s medical questions. Children's surgeons know how to examine and treat children so that they are calm and willing to cooperate. In addition, pediatric surgeons use equipment and accessories specifically designed to treat children.
