Diagnosis & Treatment


We provide advanced technology and techniques for the care and treatment of young patients. We offer a full range of diagnostic resources available at BBCH, including: 

  • All of the most advanced diagnostic imaging modalities including ultrasound, MRI, CT,
    PET and more
  • Extensive laboratory testing from a team of board-certified pathologists
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Genetic testing
  • Surgical biopsy
  • Hearing and vision assessment


As general pediatricians, our patient-care lens is focused on preventing, detecting and managing the full range of physical, behavioral, developmental and social problems that affect infants, children, adolescents and young adults. We work to:

  • Reduce infant and child mortality, promote healthy lifestyles, and ease the day-to-day difficulties of young patients living with chronic conditions such as diabetes or asthma
  • Provide excepetional preventive care, regular well-child visits, immunizations and
    health screenings
  • Identify and address developmental and behavioral problems that can result from psychosocial stressors, through structured evaluation and early intervention
  • Provide referrals to appropriate medical and surgical specialists and carefully coordinate this care when more complex conditions require more advanced care
