The department of Pediatrics at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), in partnership with Mayo Clinic, Abu Dhabi, provides advanced treatments for a spectrum of conditions that could impede children's growth from infancy to adolescence.

We specialize in dealing with common and highly critical conditions and ensure children will grow healthy.

Knowing how critical childhood is to human development and how it profoundly affects children's future physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development, providing efficient and effective treatment is a priority for us.
