What Does A Paediatrician (Child Doctor) Do? | Kids Clinic Singapore

Kids Clinic Presents: What Does A Paediatrician Do?

As parents, we want nothing more than for our little ones to develop heathily and happily. How can your child’s paediatrician best provide for their healthcare needs?

In the first video of our series, our paediatricians Dr Mas Suhaila Isa and Dr Heng Siok Kheng answer some common concerns most parents may have before visiting their child’s doctor.

What Does A Paediatrician Do?

Dr Mas: As paediatricians, we are medical doctors with special training and skills in dealing with illnesses that affect the health and development of babies, children and teenagers. We are also trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses ranging from minor health problems to more serious illnesses.

 

Dr Heng: Paediatricians look after a baby or child’s health, welfare, behaviour and even problems pertaining to learning. Another important role that paediatricians play is to guide children and their parents or guardians and counsel them regarding diet, hygiene and disease prevention.

 

When your baby has been delivered, the doctor in the hospital will check the baby for congenital problems, and monitor the baby for things like breathing disorders, feeding problems, heart problems as well as jaundice.
