The Importance of Pediatric Care

Early childhood and adolescence are times of rapid growth and development. Your child will go through many changes in 18 years, and it can be hard to understand what’s happening to them during these phases.

Pediatricians understand the early childhood and adolescent development process. During annual checkups, they can assess where your child’s physical, mental, and emotional growth and provide you with an update as to how they’re doing. Your child’s pediatrician isn’t just their care provider, he or she is also a resource for you.

The Aim of Pediatrics

Pediatrics aims to promote healthy lifestyles, ease problems and issues in children with chronic conditions, control the spread of infectious diseases, and reduce adolescent deaths.

Pediatric primary care concerns general health, long-term quality of life, and children’s overall health. Pediatricians may also work to diagnose, treat, or manage a variety of conditions in pediatric patients, including, but not limited to:

  • infections
  • genetic and congenital conditions
  • organ diseases and dysfunctions
  • injuries
  • behavioral problems
  • developmental delays or disorders
  • mental and anxiety-related disorders

Your pediatrician will work closely with you to help you monitor your child’s growth and understand any diagnosis or treatment options.

How does pediatrics differ from adult medicine?

Child health is different from adult health and medicine. Infants and children not only have smaller bodies, but they are physiologically different from adults. Unique differences mean they need to be treated differently. Additionally, doctors must be aware of the legalities of treating children. When children cannot make decisions themselves, pediatricians will carefully consider privacy, informed consent, and other issues involving minors during assessments and treatments.

Collaboration with other specialists

Pediatric medicine requires that pediatricians work closely with a variety of medical specialists. They often collaborate with other healthcare professionals to provide your child with the best treatment and care.
