Children provide different clues to their pain at different ages. A pediatric pain specialist is a health professional specially trained in recognizing and treating pain in infants, toddlers, young children, and adolescents. At Children's, a special team of health professionals from a variety of medical disciplines visit patients in the hospital to evaluate their pain. They work in concert with you, your pediatric cardiologist, and pediatric cardiovascular surgeon to ensure that your child is as comfortable as possible. See our patient / family education handout to learn more about the pain team and managing pediatric pain.
