Pediatrics and Neonatology

The field of pediatrics caters to the overall well-being of children and young individuals, focusing on their physical, mental, and emotional health. Pediatricians are specialized healthcare professionals who are extensively trained to handle the unique medical needs of this age group. They possess comprehensive knowledge regarding common childhood illnesses, growth and development milestones, immunizations, and preventive healthcare measures.

One particular subspecialty within pediatrics is neonatology, which primarily revolves around the medical care of newborn infants, particularly those who are ill or born prematurely. Neonatology is a specialized branch of medicine that predominantly takes place within hospital settings, specifically within neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
