Pediatric Infectious Diseases

Some childhood infectious diseases are highly contagious.

Although good hygiene practices can help prevent illness and infection, children are often at greater risk of contracting certain ailments because their immune system is still developing.

Whether it’s for seasonal viruses, skin infections, diarrhea, congenital infections, chronic infections, immune deficiency, or autoimmune diseases, you can count on us to provide your child with the care they need in a friendly environment designed with their comfort in mind. Our professionals are specially trained to assess, diagnose and treat children of all ages. Our dedicated team of experts collaborate with other specialists in our large network to provide the best possible care for your children.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of childhood infectious diseases:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Erythema infectiosum (also known as fifth disease)
  • Influenza
  • Infectious conjunctivitis
  • Chickenpox
  • Otitis
  • Pertussis
  • Measles
  • Pneumonia
  • Meningitis
  • Scarlet fever

What happens during a consultation with an infectious disease specialist?

During your consultation, your child’s doctor will ask you about their symptoms and medical history, and perform a physical examination. They may prescribe additional tests or, if necessary, refer your child to another pediatric health specialist.

Your doctor will also discuss your child’s treatment and follow-up plan with you.


Dr. Slim’s many years of experience performing circumcisions means that he goes the extra mile to ensure that you get the best care and comfort.

Circumcision is a surgical procedure that removes the skin (foreskin) covering the head of the penis (glans). This operation is performed under local anesthesia and lasts only a few minutes. Rest assured, you or your child won’t feel a thing.

Circumcision can be performed on males as young as 2 years of age. The younger the child, the easier the operation (as they are less aware of the procedure). That is why we advise all parents wishing to have their child circumcised to begin the procedure as soon as possible.

The doctor applies an anesthetic cream on the penis with the child lying down comfortably. The cream’s effect lasts 20 to 30 minutes.

Once the skin is numb, your child will receive an injection of dorsal penile ring block, an anesthetic, into the soft tissue surrounding the penis. This combination block of short- and long-acting anesthetics allows your child to go pain-free both during and in the hours following the procedure. The anesthetic cream ensures that your child does not feel anything during the injection.

After about 10 minutes, the penis is completely desensitized, and the circumcision can take place. The circumcision itself lasts only a minute.

During the injection and circumcision, your child is given a sugar lollipop to distract him and reduce his perception of pain.

It takes 7 to 10 days for the penis to heal. After the procedure, you will receive detailed instructions to minimize your child’s discomfort and ensure optimal healing. We are also available by phone 24 hours a day to address any concerns you may have.
