Differences between adult and pediatric medicine, is the difference in size of the body and parallel to the changes taking place in it and maturation. The smaller the body of a child or a newborn so it is essentially physiologically different from an adult. Cases such as birth defects, genetic variations, as well as development issues are more relevant to pediatricians than to doctors for adults.

Guardianship, privacy, legal responsibility and informed consent is always considered in every pediatric procedure. In a sense our pediatricians take a holistic approach and in some cases treat the parents and sometimes even family, not just the child.
