Pediatrics is the specialty that deals with the health of infants, children and adolescents. The pediatricians are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems. Children with for example recurrent pains, growth and development problems, problems of the ears, nose, throat and lungs, constipation, problems with urinating, sleeping or feeding issues can be seen by our pediatrician at ACIBADEM.

What is not possible at Acibadem:

  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine because there is no Emergency Room and children with acute health problems often need admission and inpatient treatment. Acibadem can offer outpatient pediatric care only.
  • Obesity, since this group of patients needs a special team including pediatrician, psychologist, dietician, and physiotherapist. Acibadem does not have such a special team.
  • Anorexia nervosa, since these children also need a special team as mentioned for children with obesity, and sometimes admission is necessary.

One of the pediatricians specializes in the problems of very young children. This mainly concerns excessive crying, sleeping and feeding problems (Infant Mental Health).

To visit the pediatric department you need a referral from your doctor or medical specialist. You can make an appointment directly by calling +31 (0) 20 238 8800. You can also request an appointment here on our website via the appointment form or by sending an email to, then we will contact you within 24 hours.
