Pediatric Infectious Diseases

Specializing in infections unique to children

Our pediatric specialists diagnose and treat a broad range of infectious diseases that are unique to children and differ from those in adults.  These include:

  • Community-acquired infections
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • Infections caused by resistant organisms
  • Infections in chronically ill children
  • Infections in immunocompromised children
  • Infections in refugee and immigrant children


We offer a broad range of services that include:

  • Treatment for infectious diseases caused by bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic agents
  • Expertise in community planning and public health
  • Advice to other health care providers

In addition to treating pediatric patients, our physicians are faculty members at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. As experts in their fields, they teach medical students and residents the most advanced infectious disease treatments for children, as well as the fundamentals of safe, high quality patient care.
