Pediatrician vs Paediatrician Cayman
You’ll see both Paediatrician and Pediatrician used on my pages. There’s no difference, other than one is UK spelling (paediatrician) and one is US spelling (pediatrician).
I see paediatric patients from 0 to age 18, as well as providing care for preterm infants or newborns with complications. For very preterm infants, my colleague Dr Sara watkin, Neonatologist, is our lead.
