Paediatrics

Overview

Paediatrics and Neonatology is the branch of medicine that takes care of the overall health of infants, children and adolescents, from birth till the age of twelve. It involves the screening, diagnosis and therapy of childhood conditions and abnormalities, and the prevention of various diseases through vaccination.

Our paediatrics department is proud of their successful record in giving children a healthy start in life.

Paediatrics encompasses many aspects of health care and management and as such our department operates at several levels, providing holistic solutions in a truly integrated manner.

From immunisation services to child nutrition and dental, ophthalmic and ENT screening, as well as around the clock emergency services, our paediatric specialists are true heroes who always go to great lengths to change frowns to smiles on the little faces they see every day.

Beyond direct care, we work hand in hand with families to advise and assist in the difficult task of promoting good health for their young children.
