Paediatrics

Paediatrics

Paediatrics is the medical speciality responsible for the prevention and treatment of health problems in children, from conception to adolescence.

This speciality covers the period of growth, maturity and biological, physical and social development of both healthy children and those suffering from various conditions.

The Pediatrics Service at Hospital Dr. Gálvez provides comprehensive care for children from birth to adolescence. One of the centre\’s objectives is to integrate families in the process so as not to separate children from their parents and avoid pain and anxiety during procedures. Likewise, the unit is constantly updating its diagnosis and therapeutic processes to offer the best service.
