Pediatric Specialty Services

Our comprehensive network of specialists has the expertise your child needs when they require specialized care.

What we offer

Sometimes your child needs a little extra medical attention. Specialists and sub-specialists focus on the assessment and treatment of complex medical conditions such as heart conditions, diabetes, digestive disorders, neurological abnormalities, and more. The multi-disciplinary approach at our pediatric specialty clinics gives you access to the region’s premiere specialists right in your neighborhood.

Cancer care

There are many types of cancer, and they all start when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. Our experts will explain treatment options and keep your child’s comfort at the center of every discussion.

Digestive care

Gastroenterologists are doctors that focus on the digestive system, also called the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Our specialists help kids who have trouble swallowing, reflux, feeding difficulties, and stomach disorders. Because children are still growing, gastrointestinal problems often affect development. We treat nutrition-related illnesses that may be a potential problem for children with other GI conditions.

Heart care

Nearly one in 100 babies is born with a heart defect. Our pediatric cardiology team diagnoses and treats congenital heart disease (present at birth) and acquired heart diseases.

High-risk infant follow up

Some graduates of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) have or develop significant developmental delays like prematurity, defects, or illness. We offer information and resources to support and promote your child’s growth through specialized developmental pediatric doctors and a variety of therapies.

Hormone and diabetes care

Endocrinology is the study of glands and hormones. Our specialists treat common problems such as diabetes, abnormal growth, thyroid issues, and problems that can arise during puberty.

Nervous system, brain and spinal cord (Neurology)

Our neurology specialists diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. They also work with infants, children and teens that experience headaches and seizures, among other conditions.

We support children with a variety of muscle tone abnormalities, including those affected by cerebral palsy or any type of brain injury. Different methods of treatment and interventions are offered at our clinics including medication injections and therapy suggestions aimed at optimizing your child's health and functioning.
