What Procedures do Pediatricians Perform?
Pediatricians do more than perform physical exams on children between the ages of 0 to 18. In addition to diagnosing and treating childhood illnesses and diseases, pediatricians also perform a variety of in-office procedures.
Common Pediatric Procedures
- Draining abscesses
- Temporary splinting of fractures or broken bones
- Removal of objects from ears and noses
- Repair lacerations
- Nebulizer treatments
- Treat minor injuries
If situations arise that are out of the realm of treatment scope, pediatricians will refer you to a specialist so your child can get the treatment needed.
