A branch of medicine called, Pediatrics, provides for the medical care for children. Doctors for kids are called pediatricians and they specialize in identifying and treating health issues encountered by a child. Pediatrics begins from neonatal care to pre-teen health provision and aid.
Pediatricians are also licensed immunologists that give immunizations and vaccinations to children especially for children. Pediatricians are doctors that deal with simple medical care like vaccinations to much more severe medical cases involving children care like congenital disorders that need to be dealt with immediately after birth. In most cases, pediatricians are doctors that closely monitor proper child growth but in certain cases, they are intensive care doctors especially trained for children.
