Paediatrics is the branch of medicine dealing with the health care of children and infants. The age group this medical science covers is from 0 to 18 years. The word ‘pediatrics’ itself means ‘healer of children’ as it has been derived from two Greek words viz. pais= child and iatros = doctor/healer. Paediatrics was not much known before the mid-19th century.

Paediatrics diagnose and treat several problems among children including

  • Organ diseases
  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Genetic and congenital conditions
  • Cancers

Paediatrics is not just concerned with immediate measures and treatment of problems but also plays a great role in the long-term development of a child as well.

  • To all of the staff at the Parvati Hospital. I felt I must write and thank you for the care and consideration shown to me over the last six months, when I have been undergoing various tests in your department. Times like this are always worrying and stressful, but your friendly welcoming attitude and professional and jargon-free communication make us comfortable.


  • I had met with an accident. When I had visited the Parvati Hospital, my father-in-law and I have been very impressed by the positive atmosphere, friendly and professional attitude of all of the staff. I do not normally like coming to hospital (for obvious reasons), however, the expert care and attention received in this clinic makes such a great difference.
