Pediatrics

Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents.

Pediatricians

Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of your child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They’re trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.

Our Paediatrics Department

Our team of Pediatricians is having one Pediatrician and one PICU Intensivist who are highly qualified with postgraduate training in excellent and renowned teaching medical colleges and hospitals across India.

At Amritdhara My Hospital’s Pediatris department , we bring the same extraordinary dedication, skill and expertise of our adult care to children. But when a child is sick or injured, it’s not enough for a hospital to have the most qualified doctors and advanced technologies. It’s not enough to just have caring nurses and kind doctors in a kid-friendly, non-threatening environment. You need to have access to a team that works together flawlessly, with one goal in mind: healing children as quickly and happily as possible.

To take care of your child, our pediatrician will:

  • Do physical exams
  • Give your child vaccinations
  • Make sure he/she meets milestones in growth, behavior, and skills
  • Diagnose and treat your child’s illnesses, infections, injuries, and other health problems
  • Give you information about your child’s health, safety, nutrition, and fitness needs
  • Answer your questions about your little one’s growth and development
  • Refer you to specialists if they think your child needs expert care
