DeKalb Health’s pediatric specialists are entrusted with the care of our smallest and most important patients.
Our pediatricians manage the physical, emotional and social health of children from birth through young adulthood, including the prevention, early detection, and management of behavioral, developmental and functional social disorders. The pediatric care at Dekalb Health also provides rehabilitative care from after surgery and pediatric therapy for children living with orthopedic, musculoskeletal, nuerologic, congenital and developmental conditions.
With special training in pediatric medical conditions, our pediatric therapists evaluate each patient’s specific needs and design a unique program to address functional deficits.
Pediatricians also indirectly care for parents. Because of the young age and immaturity of their primary patients, pediatricians work with parents or guardians to educate and provide guidance about the child's normal health and growth.
