Whats difference in approach by pediatric neurosurgery, pediatric oncology, pediatric general surgery?

Interesting!: I'm wondering about the reason for your question. The one place they will commonly overlap is in treatment of childhood brain tumors. Both pediatric neurologists and pediatric oncologists become pediatric neuro-oncologists, doctors who specialize in brain tumor treatment.

What do other doctors think about gp's taking on pediatric patients? Should kids see pediatricians?
Pediatrics vs. GP: I'm biased being a pediatrician, gps get about a year of peds, pediatricians get three years all peds. If you are going to take your child to your gp (so one doctor sees the whole family which is great) you might just want to make sure that the gp has a pediatrician that he/she trusts to run things by when he/she isn't sure. The most important quality in any doc is knowing what he/she doesn't know. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
