Pediatrics is the field of medicine that focuses on the medical treatment of children and teenagers, typically anyone from birth to around 18 years of age. Caring for children is distinctly different than caring for adults since children have unique medical conditions and issues that adults do not face and their different body size poses some unique treatment challenges. Pediatricians offer vaccinations, general health exams, and treatments for an assortment of minor conditions and injuries. When a patient has a more serious problem, a pediatrician will refer him or her to a specialist.
