Our child allergology department carries out a full examination and treatment of hay fever, asthma, chronic cough, breathing difficulties, eczema and hives. Although the incidence of these types of allergic diseases has increased in recent years, fortunately the range of therapeutic options is also expanding.
With hay fever, asthma and allergic skin conditions, hereditary factors play a determining role. However, environmental factors, provoking allergens and 'sensitization', also affect the development of symptoms. Some allergic diseases typically begin at a certain age.
In infancy, atopic dermatitis and food allergies affecting the skin appear, while asthma is most common in young and early school-age children. Hay fever usually occurs in adolescence, although in recent years its onset has shifted towards an even younger age.
In our child allergology department we use skin tests, blood tests, respiratory function and X-ray tests to diagnose allergies and chronic respiratory diseases. For treatment, we often involve doctors from other areas of our institution, such as pediatric gastroenterologists and dermatologists.
Children's ear, nose and throat
Acute or chronic diseases of the ear, nose, and throat affect a significant proportion of children as well az adults. The common cold recurrent middle ear inflammation, nasal congestion, signusitis, sore throat and tonsillitis are the most common conditions dealt with by doctors in this field.
The Dr. Rose specialists place special emphasis on the care of children using the most modern examination procedures and working closely with doctors in other areas ( allergology, pulmonology).
This department deals with childhood stomach, intestinal and liver diseases.
Our specialist is most often visited by those with abdominal pain, various food allergies (milk, eggs, soy, hazelnuts, etc.) and lactose or fructose intolerance. Childhood gastroenterology diseases also include gluten intolerance (celiac disease), developmental delay, acid reflux disease, inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis) childhood liver diseases, Gilbert's disease, prolonged jaundice.
In children, the background of diseases, in addition to hereditary pathologies is often due to poor nutrition and increased psychological stress.
Children's gastroenterology tests include:
- Laboratory tests (blood, urine)
- Celiac serology tests
- Food allergy antibody screening
- Hydrogen exhalation test (lactose, fructose)
- Stool tests
- Abdominal ultrasound
The specialty of pediatric orthopedy is responsible for diagnosing and treating postural disorders in the arms, legs and spine. The most common orthopedic problems of children are hip dislocation, clubfoot, crooked neck and splay feet.
Children are first examined in early infancy, during weeks 4-6. Most problems can be cured by physiotherapy: exercising can prevent the disorder from becoming fixed and evolving into a more serious condition.
Out orthopedists are also concerned with the treatment of walking abnormalities and follow the child’s functional movement development. They can offer therapy for knock-knees, X feet, O feet, postural disorders, scoliosis, childhood splay feet, growing joint pains and developmental disorders. They examine the musculoskeletal system of teenagers, and they can give recommendation on which sport to choose. They also provide treatment and follow-up for sports injuries.
This department is concerned with the functioning of the hormone system in children, which differs from that of adults. Some tests only require blood to be taken once, but there are cases when load tests lasting a couple of hours are necessary. To ensure the least possible discomfort for the child during an examination we use an intravenous cannula to avoid separate injections while taking blood.
Treatment, as with adults, is carried out with the help of medication.
The most common groups of diseases associated with this area are:
- Developmental delay
- Turner syndrome
- Genital developmental disorders
- Disorders of sex development
- Thyroid disorders
- Metabolic bone disease
The child nephrology department deals with diseases affecting the kidneys and the urinary tract and their consequences. Nephrological diseases include rare pathologies and common diseases affecting a significant part of the pediatric population, such as urinary tract infection. Night-time bedwetting is still a very common problem among children over 6 years of age, which aside from psychological reasons can also be caused by kidney and bladder abnormalities.
Nephrological diseases often appear in a latent asymptomatic form, but in advanced cases, weakness, loss of appetite, headache and anemia may be detected. However, some pathologies (kidney, stones, inflammations) may be particularly acute (pain, fever, urinary, disorders). In diagnosing kidney diseases, family clinical history, a thorough physical examination or lab tests (blood, urine) and scans (e.g. ultrasound) all play an important role.
Our pediatric nephrology tests consist of:
- Laboratory tests (blood, urine)
- Immunological studies
- Imaging test (abdominal ultrasound, isotope scans, X-ray scans, CT, MRI scans)
- Endoscopic examinations
- Kidney biopsy
Ophthalmology is a field that requires special care with children. Thanks to the excellent professional experience of our pediatric ophthalmologists, we treat the children who come to us with the required patience and expertise. Due to children's possible lack of knowledge of letters and numbers, it is necessary to communicate in a different way during the examination.
Pediatric ophthalmology screening is designed to detect refraction defects and squints in a timely manner to reduce the chance of developing amblyopia.
Pediatric ophthalmology-related test
In the course of an ophthalmological examination - as in adult eye tests - visual impairment, eye inflammation and other ophthalmic complaints are monitored and treated, and the health of the eye is assessed, from which we can obtain much information relating to general diseases of the body. At the request of doctors with other specialties (e.g. pediatrician, neurologist) the condition of the back of the eye can also be examined with a view to excluding possible diseases.
