What is a Paediatrician?

While most medical specialists deal with a certain area of the body or a specified disease or condition, paediatrics involves the overall medical care of children up to aged 18. The word paediatrics translates as ‘healer of children’, and that’s a very good way to describe the role. Your pediatrician will probably either work in a hospital, in a private clinic or as an outpatient doctor. A medical doctor who manages the physical, behavioural, and mental care of children, they obviously have a very wide remit, as you can see from the long list of conditions below. The best Melbourne pediatricians are trained to deal with everything from minor childhood conditions to very serious diseases and illnesses.

When to see a Paediatrician?

Your family doctor is a great first stop but a top paediatrician has experienced a lot more specialist training in children’s health and they only treat children. If your child was born prematurely or suffers from an illness that needs to be carefully monitored, your paediatrician will provide all the tailored expertise you need. If you have a newborn child, it’s wise to see a paediatrician 48 – 72 hours after the birth to check the baby thoroughly. Then you’ll need to bring the child for regular check-ups up to the age of two, for well-child appointments. After your child passes the age of five and is fit and healthy, you shouldn’t need to have them checked so frequently.

What subspecialties are included in paediatrics?

As you can imagine, paediatrics comes with a long list of subspecialties. These include pediatric emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, transplant hepatology, paediatric nephrology and oncology, pulmonology, sleep medicine and even something called social paediatrics. There are specialists in dermatology and neurology, epilepsy, pain, vascular issues, psychiatry, and many more. And that means there might well be a specialist who can treat your child with the dedicated expertise and experience you expect.
