Pediatric and newborn medicine is also known as pediatrics. This is the specialty of medical science concerned with the physical, mental and social health of children from birth to young adulthood. Within the field of pediatrics, some newborn medicine specialists are called neonatologists, and take care of sick babies.

Top Clinical Care for Our Community

Our pediatric specialists focus on care outside the realm of a family medicine or primary care physician – so if your child needs something extra, like plastic surgery for a cleft lip or to see a pediatric neurology specialist, SIU Medicine has a variety of pediatric specialists to meet the needs of the community.


Care Backed by Pioneering Research

Our treatments for pediatric medicine are shaped by insights of medical scholars whose mission is to advance your child’s health while advancing medical research. Through education and research, we aim to elevate our entire community by discovering cures and new treatments for the present and the future.
