Paediatrician & Child Specialist Clinic Services Overview
Before your little one arrives, a great deal of preparation needs to be done, and choosing the right Paediatrician is one of the things you need to do. A Paediatrician is a medical doctor who specialises in the physical, behavioural and mental health of children right from birth till the age of 16. Paediatricians are trained to diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood-related illnesses and are thus, crucial to your little one’s health care.
While a regular physician can provide regular health care and treatment, the needs and requirements of a child are often specialised. Therefore, it is essential that your young one is given specialised care and services that are specifically dedicated paediatric services. Our paediatricians at Apollo Cradle have specialised training in the fields of physical, emotional and behavioural needs of children. We also train our paediatricians to recognise and treat childhood illnesses and infectious diseases which regular medical care professionals may not be able to treat. In an event where your child needs specialised paediatric care due to a premature birth or any other health condition in the period just after birth, our qualified Neonatologists are well equipped to monitor and offer even more specialised care.

Right from the time of birth, till the age of 12, your child will be vulnerable to a host of diseases, viruses, and bacteria. At such a tender age, the body of your child may not have the required immune system to protect them from these communicable diseases. In an event, where your child may contract a disease or virus, the consequences may be dire. Certain diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and HVP still exist today, and can still be easily be transmitted from one individual to another. In many parts of the world vaccine- preventable diseases are still common, and there is every chance of your child contracting them.
To prevent such an occurrence, the ideal solution is to protect your child through vaccination. Vaccinations ensure that your child is immune to certain communicable diseases, thus preventing them from contracting it or even suffering from the effects of it. In the occasion where they come into contact with an infected individual, the vaccinated child will not be affected by the serious effects or complications.
