    It is never a pleasant experience to go visit a hospital to get yourself checked due to any health issue. Most people detest hospital setups due to the unwelcoming attitude of most of the healthcare staff. Therefore, it is very important to have a hospital that not just cares about the treatment plan of patients but also has a patient-friendly attitude around them. SRCC Children’s Hospital is one such hospital that takes special care of this. They don’t just have a team of experts at their disposal but they focus on building a good rapport with all their patients. SRCC Children’s Hospital is located in Mumbai, India, and it is one of the finest hospitals located in this region. It has many modern pieces of equipment within the premises of the hospital. Through their advanced machinery, many rare and complicated cases are diagnosed and managed every day. SRCC Children’s Hospital takes special pride in having some of the best pediatric treatments available. Their specialized departments that cater to the pediatric population include, Pediatric Surgery Department, Neonatal Surgery Department, Developmental Pediatrics Department, as well as Pediatric Medicine Department. There are also other various departments that cover Critical and Emergency Care Services, Cardiac Surgery, Vascular and thoracic Surgery, and many other diverse fields. Top Medical Specialties Offered by the SRCC Children’s Hospital SRCC Children’s Hospital has many different departments dedicated to the treatment of specific pathologies. However, there are some specialties that are known for their credibility. Some of these specialties have been listed and discussed below: 1. Spondylothesis 2. Pediatric Blood Disorders 3. Childhood Cancer 4. Childhood Infectious Disease 5. Cerebral Palsy Spondylolisthesis Spondylolisthesis is a painful condition, in which one vertebra slips and goes in the position of the vertebrae lower to it. This causes back pain and needs special attention from a physician. This deformity can compress nerves passing through the spine leading to severe pain. Common symptoms of spondylolisthesis may include tingling, muscle spasms in the back of the thigh, pain while standing or walking for long periods, and stiffness in the region of the back. Neurosurgeons at SRCC Children’s Hospital make sure to thoroughly assess patients with complaints of back pain. Routine tests are carried out on these patients, advising them to get an X-ray and a CT scan done. With the help of advanced radiological investigations, spondylolisthesis is identified and managed. Management protocols are different depending on the intensity of pain. Most often, it is managed in a nonsurgical setting by prescribing medicines and recommending physical therapy. However, patients with extreme pain are then surgically operated on to relieve pressure off the compressed nerve. Pediatric Blood Disorders There are a number of blood disorders that present in the pediatric population such as Sickle Cell Disease, Beta-Thalassemia, and Bone-Marrow Disorders. These diseases are often very difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. Children may come with symptoms of lethargy, nausea, and vomiting. Therefore, pediatricians at the SRCC Children's Hospital make sure to evaluate every child for any kind of pathology. Blood tests are sent to assess any problems in the shape, concentration, or color of Hemoglobin and Red Blood Cells. Most pathologies are suspected with deranged blood reports. Extensive workup is then carried out in patients with any suspected blood disorders. Genetic disorders such as Sickle Cell Disease and Beta-Thalassemia can only be managed by blood transfusions. However, a new management strategy is also being used at the SRCC Children's Hospital, which is Hematopoietic Cell Transplant. Through this advanced treatment option, children can produce normal cells, which can greatly reduce morbidity and mortality of the children. Childhood Cancer Cancer is mostly suspected in the old age population, but there are also many cancers that present in the pediatric age group. Some of the common childhood cancers may include Leukemia, Tumors of the Brain and Spinal Cord, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Lymphoma, and Retinoblastoma. All of these cancers present with different signs and symptoms; therefore, it becomes absolutely vital for pediatricians to diagnose cancer at its earliest. Due to the advanced machinery available at the SRCC Children's Hospital, diagnosis and management of these cancers have become very efficient. Physicians make sure to carry out proper physical exams on children presenting with complaints of fatigue, pale skin, bleeding, easy bruising, fever, headache, vomiting, and weight loss. These symptoms give great clues to the underlying disease. A biopsy is usually done to confirm the type of cancer, and then an immediate treatment and management plan is employed. The Pediatric Oncology Department at the SRCC Children’s Hospital ensures that every child is kept in a comfortable environment, having the most welcoming and friendly attitude by the healthcare staff and doctors. Childhood Infectious Diseases There are a number of infectious diseases that present in the early age group. Children have low immunity and hence become the best target of all the microorganisms in the environment. They usually present with symptoms of fever, cough, cold, and flu. Slight variations may appear in symptoms according to the microorganism affecting the child. Whenever a child comes with such symptoms at the SRCC Children’s Hospital, blood is sent to assess the levels of lymphocytes, red blood cells, platelets, as well as hemoglobin. A throat swab is also taken to look for fungal or bacterial infections. After that, a blood culture test is sent to assess the type of microorganism present in the blood causing all the symptoms. Treatment of specific antibiotics is started once blood cultures reveal bacterial growth. As for viral infections, there is usually a decrease in the levels of lymphocytes. When there is viral growth seen in cultures, antiviral drug therapy is started in these patients. These medicines are very carefully administered to help them recover faster. After completing the courses of antibacterial and antiviral medicines, another set of blood tests are carried out to confirm that the child is indeed disease-free before getting discharged.
