Department of paediatrics
The department of paediatrics at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona offers a full range of diagnostics and treatments for various diseases in children and adolescents. The department's multidisciplinary team consists of a paediatrician, a nurse manager, a neonatologist, and, if necessary, a social worker and a priest. The main task of paediatricians is focused on monitoring a healthy child and caring for a sick child. The regularity of visits to the doctor depends on the child's age and the presence of any acute or chronic disease. After examining the child, the paediatrician reveals deviations from the standardized norm through questioning, physical examination, and additional diagnostics procedures. In some cases, after establishing the diagnosis, the paediatrician indicates the most appropriate therapy and rules that contribute to the rapid restoration of functions.
The department specializes in managing patients with diseases associated with growth and development abnormalities, psychosocial disorders and chronic diseases. The most common conditions in children are bronchial asthma, otitis media with or without deafness, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and eating disorders. The department's medical team have many years of experience working with children and can find an approach for a child of any age.
