Pediatric Conditions We Treat
Asthma attacks are caused when the airways in your child’s lungs are bothered by an asthma trigger. Each child’s asthma triggers are different. It’s important to know your child’s asthma triggers so you can avoid them when possible.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system by making fluids and mucus thick and sticky. This causes persistent lung infections that progressively limit the ability to breathe.
Children with diabetes are at risk for some other physical and mental health issues. We work with other Children’s specialists and professionals to diagnose, treat and manage conditions.
Epilepsy is a neurological disease. It happens when a person experiences sudden, reoccurring seizures. A person who has two or more seizures is considered to have epilepsy. There are many possible causes of epilepsy, including tumors, strokes, and brain damage from illness or injury.
