History of Paediatrics:

The word ‘Pediatrics’ or ‘Paediatrics’ is derived from two Greek words - Pais meaning “child”, iatros meaning “doctor, healer”. Its cognate means “healer of children”. The field of paediatrics which we know today began in the early 1930s and originated from the American Pediatric Society and American Academy of Pediatrics. With the information from earlier research and recordings about children, paediatrics is a separate speciality.

Dr. Abraham Jacobi is considered as ‘Father of American Paediatrics’ (1830–1919) for his contributions in the field of Paediatrics.


Paediatrics is a division of medicine that includes the health and medical care of babies, children, and adolescents. Paediatrics is not only about the management of ill children but also concerned with the long term effects on quality of life, disability and survival.

A doctor or physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of paediatrics conditions is called Paediatrician. Get your child treated from Best Pediatrician in Bangalore in a child-friendly environment or visit Best Child Care Hospital in Bangalore.
