What is a Paediatrician?

Pediatrics involves medical care for infants, children and adolescents up to the age of 18. A medical doctor specialising in the area is a pediatrician, or paediatrician.  The word pediatrics actually means ‘healer of children’, and those who practice it can either work in a hospital or as an outpatient doctor in primary care.

Pediatricians manage a child’s physical, behavioural and mental health conditions, trained to deal with everything from minor childhood illnesses to serious diseases and illnesses. Once you go home with your new baby a paediatrician will see them anything from 48 to 72 hours later for a check-up, then at regular intervals for ongoing checks. They’ll see your child from birth to aged two regularly for ‘well-child’ appointments, less frequently after age five. 

When to see a paediatrician?

You could make your family GP your first port of call, of course, but a paediatrician has special training in children’s health and only ever cares for children, so they’re experts as well as highly experienced. If your child was premature or has a condition that needs to be monitored, a paediatrician can offer expert support. 

What conditions does a paediatrician treat? 

A paediatrician diagnoses, manages and treats a very wide range of conditions in babies, children and adolescents. Here are just a few of the most common. If your child is ill, they will be able to help with: 

  • Allergies
  • Ear infections
  • Growth issues 
  • Juvenile arthritis and diabetes
  • Childhood asthma
  • Digestive issues
  • Blood disorders
  • Cancers
  • Kidney problems
  • Respiratory illnesses 
  • Sleep problems 
  • Bone issues 
  • Viruses

What subspecialties are included under paediatrics? 

There’s an absolutely huge list of paediatric subspecialties including pediatric emergency medicine and  endocrinology, gastroenterology and transplant hepatology, paediatric nephrology and paediatric oncology, pulmonology, sleep medicine and social pediatrics. Plus paediatric experts in dermatology as well as neurology, epilepsy, pain, vascular issues, psychiatry, the list goes on. If there’s a speciality, there’s a paediatrics-focused expert available to help you and your child.
