Pediatric is basically a branch of medicines which is only meant for the children from the birth to the stage of adolescence. Thus pediatric is not meant for the adults. The word "pediatric" is generated from the Greek words "paidi" and "iatros". Here "paidi," generally means a boy and "iatros," refers to a doctor. Thus from this terminology "pediatric" means a doctor which is generally meant for the treatment of a young boy. This branch of medicine is only meant for the a specified age group which might start approximately when a baby is born till the completion of the adolescence stage, based on their psychological and physiological concepts.

Pediatricians deal with various problems of the children. For example, there are pediatricians who only deal with the dental health of the children. Moreover there are also pediatric cardiologists who generally deal with the cardiac or the heart conditions of the children. In the same way for dealing with cancer like leukemia in small children, there are pediatric oncologists. Thus it can be estimated in this context that there are pediatricians and pediatric medicines which are solely meant for the children from birth to the stage of adolescence.

In the field of pediatrics, there are also pediatric nurses who are meant for taking care of the infants, the children and the adolescence. It is to be noted out here that the pediatric nurses are generally trained in the field of taking care of young patients and in assisting the doctors in their work. Pediatric generally means taking intensive care and attention of the young patients. As the young patients are generally found to be afraid and scared of certain treatments, pediatricians in different field thus helps in providing self help and confidence in the young patients.

Pediatrics also involves surgical operations. But this form of surgery generally varies from the type of surgery which is meant for the adults. Pediatric surgeons perform the pediatric surgery in the hospitals which are generally meant for the children. The important concept which is worth mentioning in respect of pediatric treatment is that as the young children are not capable of making any decision, thus the decision related to the treatment of the young patients by the pediatricians should get the confirmation of the young patients guardians regarding the type of treatment and surgery meted out to the young patients.

Understanding Pediatric Surgery in India

Pediatric Surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in the surgical treatment of conditions affecting children. Pediatric surgeons operate on children whose development ranges from the newborn stage through the teenage years. In addition to completing training and achieving board certification, pediatric surgeons complete two additional years of training exclusively in children's surgery. They then receive special certification in the subspecialty of pediatric surgery.

Types of Pediatric Surgery in India :

  • Major surgery
    A surgery is "major" if it involves the head, neck, chest or abdomen, because it can greatly affect the way the body functions. Recovery time for major surgery can be lengthy and may involve a stay in intensive care or at least several days in the hospital.
  • Minor surgery
    A surgery is called "minor" if the estimated recovery time is short and a child rapidly returns to her usual activities. Complications from minor surgeries are rare.
  • Elective surgery
    An elective procedure may not be essential for your child's health, but you may decide your child should undergo it to enhance or preserve his quality of life. It doesn't necessarily have to be done immediately.
  • Required surgery
    A surgery is called "required" if it must be done to ensure the quality of your child's life.
