Some of the pediatric patients that we provide quality care to are:

Premature Babies

A premature baby is born 37 weeks of gestation. Premature infants are at greater risk for short and long term complications, including disabilities and impediments in growth and mental development. The cause of preterm birth, in many situations, remains unknown; however, some of the common risk factors are:

Carrying more than one baby (twins, triplets, or more)

  • Problems with the Uterus or Cervix
  • Chronic Maternal Health Issues such as High Blood Pressure and Diabetes
  • Cigarette Smoking, Consumption of Alcohol and Illicit Drug Use

Health problems that may affect premature babies include:

  • Apnea. This is a pause in breathing for 20 seconds or more.
  • Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS). Difficult breathing is common in babies born before 34 weeks of gestation. Babies with RDS don’t have a protein called surfactant that keeps small air sacs in the lungs from collapsing.
  • Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). This is bleeding in the brain.
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA). This is a congenital disorder of the heart wherein the ductus artery fails to close after birth.This type of hemorrhage is particularly common in infants, especially those of very low birth weight.

Babies with Developmental Delays

A developmental delay is any significant physical, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, or social delay in which developmental milestones are not met.

A developmental evaluation should be conducted by a highly trained professional who can use the results to create a profile of your child’s strengths and weaknesses. The developments areas assessed are:

  • Physical Development (Fine Motor Skills, Gross Motor Skills)
  • Cognitive Development (Intellectual Abilities)
  • Communication Development (Speech and Language)
  • Social or Emotional Development (Social Skills and Emotional Control)

The results of the developmental evaluation will be used to decide if your child needs early intervention services. The assessments are tailored to meet a child’s individual needs and, as such, are a very important resource to children experiencing developmental delays. Early intervention services can include medical and nursing services.

imageBabies with GI Disorders

  • These include infants who, in the first few days of life, fail to pass stools; and experience abdominal distention and vomiting. Thick, inspissated, rubbery meconium forms a cast in the colon, resulting to complete obstruction.
  • Disorders like functional abdominal pain, chronic constipation and/or soiling, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) occur in children at a rate similar to adults. They strike about 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 kids and teens.
  • Some GI disorders in children are rare. For example, in the U.S., about 200 new cases of intestinal pseudo-obstruction are diagnosed in children each year. Hirschsprung’s disease occurs in about 1 out of every 5,000 live births.
  • Regardless of whether common or rare, functional GI and motility disorders can be painful to both the child and his or her family. The first step is to work with a doctor or health care professional to find out what your child has.
  • It’s common for infants to spit up after a meal; but frequent vomiting associated with discomfort and difficulty feeding, or weight loss may be caused by Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, commonly referred to as GERD. GERD is a condition that causes the upward movement of stomach content, including acid, into the esophagus and sometimes into or out of the mouth.

Babies with Autosomal Disorders

  • Rare chromosome disorders include extra, missing or re-arranged chromosome material; but do not include the more common chromosome conditions such as Down Syndrome. Using the latest technology, it is now possible for smaller and more complex chromosome defects to be identified. The amount of chromosome material duplicated, missing or re-arranged can vary a great deal resulting in case specific differences.
  • Individually rare chromosome disorders are very rare but collectively, they are common. In fact, one in every 200 babies is born with a rare chromosome disorder, one in every 1,000 babies having symptoms from birth or early childhood, the rest being affected when they grow up and try to have babies of their own.
  • Phenylketonuria is a rare metabolic disorder that affects the way the body breaks down protein. If not treated shortly after birth, PKU can be destructive to the nervous system, causing mental retardation. About 1 out of every 15,000 babies in the United States are born with PKU.
