Specialised Paediatric & Neonatal Care at Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Paediatrics is the branch of medicine dealing with medical care of infants, children and adolescents. Neonatology is a sub-specialty involving care of new-borns especially premature or ill new-borns. Children are physiologically different from adults hence the concerns of a paediatrician like congenital defects, developmental issues and so on, are greater than for a physician treating an adult.
