Neonatology (Newborn Medicine)

by Brian Alverson, MD

Neonatologists are doctors who specialize in the care of newborn children, a patient population that can present a unique set of health challenges requiring a high level of skill and medical expertise to treat. This is particularly true of premature newborns and those with underdeveloped organs.

This field of practice addresses severe complications seen in newborns—intraventricular hemorrhage, tracheoesophageal fistula, gastroschisis and omphalocele, and congenital infections—and quickly recognizing these complications can be life-saving. Neonatologists also play an important role in more routine aspects of care, like counseling parents before, during, and after childbirth.
