A pediatrician manages the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the children under their care at every stage of development, in both sickness and health. Pediatricians diagnose and treat several conditions among children including:-

  • injuries
  • infections
  • genetic and congenital conditions
  • cancers
  • organ diseases and dysfunctions

Pediatrics is concerned not only with immediate management of the ill child but also with long-term effects on quality of life, disability, and survival. Pediatricians are involved with the prevention, early detection, and management of problems including:-

  • developmental delays and disorders
  • behavioral problems
  • functional disabilities
  • social stresses
  • mental disorders including depression and anxiety disorders

Pediatrics is a collaborative specialty. Pediatricians need to work closely with other medical specialists and healthcare professionals and subspecialists of pediatrics to help children with problems.
