Pediatrics and General Medicine
What Are Pediatrics and General Medicine?
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that focuses on helping children, including the conditions or diseases they might have. General Medicine is a specialty that focuses on adult care.
Conditions Pediatrics and General Medicine Treats
Pediatricians and general medicine practitioners see children and adults who have a wide range of conditions, which can include:
- Digestive issues.
- Endocrine issues.
- Infectious diseases.
- Nutrition and feeding concerns.
- Respiratory needs.
You might work with a special needs pediatrician or general medicine practitioner if your child needs neuropalliative care, or has a condition—such as respiratory complications or feeding issues—that might affect recovery from surgery.
The pediatricians and general medicine practitioners at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare have deep expertise working with children who have disabilities, and adults who have complex conditions that began in childhood.
To help your child get the comprehensive care they need, our pediatricians and general medicine practitioners collaborate with other Gillette specialists as needed. We help you figure out when to see an expert in another area, and can assist you with coordinating a full treatment plan.
