A pediatrician (or paediatrician) is a doctor who specifically treats children. You can visit a pediatrician in Pune to discuss and treat a range of issues from small illnesses to chronic medical conditions. Here is a list of things a top pediatrician in Pune can do:

  • Administer vaccines 
  • Review the growth and development of a child 
  • Diagnose and treat health issues related to a newborn
  • Treat minor illness and injuries like sore throat or wounds
  • Diagnose and treat chronic problems like asthma
  • Diagnose and treat serious conditions like autoimmune disorders
  • Execute pediatric surgery and circumcision (though this may be handled by a specialised pediatric surgeon)

Apart from physical ailments, a paediatrician also addresses the mental and emotional health of children and adolescents. 


There are generally two kinds of pediatricians in Pune: general paediatricians and pediatric specialists. Child specialists have more training in and knowledge of specific fields or areas in medical care related to kids. These specialty pediatrics include:

  • Neonatology
  • Oncology 
  • Gastroenterology
  • Cardiology 
  • Nephrology 
  • Pulmonology 
  • Infectious Diseases 
  • Endocrinology
  • Critical Care 

Rather than waiting for an health or wellness issue, take your infant to see a top pediatrician in Pune around 3 to 6 days after birth. 


Though you may find a pediatrician by searching for ‘kids doctor near me’, a paediatrician is much more than a baby doctor. A pediatrician sees a child from infancy to young adulthood, up to the age of 18 or 20. To understand when your son or daughter can move to your family physician, it is best to talk to a child specialist in Pune. 


You can get well-child check-ups done with a top pediatrician in Pune starting from the first week or two after the birth of your child and follow it up at intervals of 2, 4, 6 9, 12, 15 and 18 months, and then 2 years. After this age, you can opt for annual or bi-annual visits. It is common to go for a 5-year check up for a child, and after that visit a child specialist in Pune based on need. 


To understand if you should opt for a child specialist in Pune vs a general physician in Pune, it is important to know that a general physician offers primary care to adults over the age of 18. Pediatricians have special training in the field of children’s health and may have further skillsets in a specific branch under paediatrics such as surgery, neonatal care, cardiology and more. If your child or adolescent requires secondary or tertiary care related to complex disorders or surgical procedures, it is best to visit a pediatrician.
