Doctors who are trained in the field of pediatrics, which is a branch of medical science that deals with diagnosing, preventing, and treating infants, kids, and adolescents, are called pediatricians. They provide medical treatment for a child’s illness. Pediatricians physically examine your child, give them vaccinations, keep a record of your child’s growth and development, and educate you about your child’s nutritional needs.
A pediatrician is trained to perform the following procedures on kids:
- Giving vaccination.
- Treat dislocation of joints.
- Temporary fracture splinting.
- Lumbar puncture.
- Perform circumcisions.
- Suturing a wound.
