Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the health and well-being of infants, children, and adolescents. At Koru Hospital, our pediatric department is staffed with highly trained and experienced doctors and nurses who are dedicated to providing the best possible care for our young patients.
One of the most important aspects of pediatrics is early diagnosis and intervention. Children are not just small adults, and their bodies and health concerns are unique. Our pediatricians are skilled at recognizing and treating a wide range of conditions that affect children, from common illnesses like colds and flu to more serious conditions like diabetes, asthma, and congenital heart defects.
In addition to diagnosing and treating illnesses, our pediatricians also focus on preventive care. This includes regular checkups and vaccinations to help protect children from common childhood diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella. We also provide advice and guidance on healthy eating, exercise, and other lifestyle habits that can help children grow up strong and healthy.
At Koru Hospital, we understand that children and their families may feel anxious or scared when it comes to medical care. That's why our pediatric department is designed to be a welcoming and reassuring environment, with child-friendly spaces and a team of caring professionals who take the time to listen and answer questions. In our hospital, there are several sub-specialities within the field of pediatrics:
Pediatric Cardiology: This sub-specialty focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of heart and cardiovascular conditions in children, including congenital heart defects, heart failure, and arrhythmias.
