Early recognition of signs and symptoms are the best way to ensure that we prevent complications of any disease. Some important sign and symptoms to look out for in your child are:

  • Signs of physical weakness
  • Lack of interest in playtime or at school.
  • Weight loss.

Diagnosis

Paediatric care is as important and unique a field as any other field of medicine. Our Paediatricians therefore do a comprehensive analysis of each child’s health with the required investigative tools to arrive at a clinical diagnosis of any symptoms that they exhibit. We walk each family through the steps involved in diagnosis so that they are able to handle this with less stress.

Prevention

Technological advances have helped us prevent diseases in children even before they are born. Our multispecialty clinic also provides excellent antenatal care for expectant mothers through regular prenatal check-ups by qualified Obstetricians/Gynaecologists.

Once the children are born, our paediatricians take over to ensure that we have a full history of your child from the day they are born, and this helps us give them the best medical care. We also provide parents with recommendations for the health and well being of their infants or children based on the family history of both parents.
