Neonatal medicine is a branch of pediatrics that focuses on premature infants and/or infants with complex medical conditions. These medical conditions can be caused by a low birth weight, internal infections, and malfunctioning lungs, among others. Until they turn one month old, babies often receive care from a neonatologist.

Premature babies need close supervision and a full course of nourishment to guarantee recovery and growth. A neonatologist’s main priority is ensuring that infants receive the appropriate medical care and treatment to lead a healthy life.

Our Neonatology Clinic

Parents desire compassionate care, realistic medical information tailored to their situation, and the freedom to wish for the best result. At Medcare’s Neonatology Clinic, we acknowledge your concerns and provide you with personalized and meticulous treatment plans. Our Clinics are equipped with cutting-edge medical equipment, adhering to internationally-set standards and the latest technological advances.

Our neonatologists see term babies up to two months old as for extreme pre-term babies, up to two years and give each one of them the best care while concentrating on their unique situation because we recognize that no two journeys are the same. When infants are six months of age and older, pediatricians examine them and monitor their conditions and health issues.

When should you consult with a Neonatologist?

Prenatal testing might reveal some neonatal problems. If a concern is found, our neonatologists may be referred by OB/GYN experts. Along with our best neonatologists, we will meet privately with a family to discuss a baby’s condition and make arrangements for postpartum care.

Specialized services offered by our Neonatology Department

Our neonatologists offer specialized care for infants who are critically ill, including those who are referred for surgical emergencies, medical, genetic, neurologic, and metabolic issues, as well as the tiniest infants, those born from 22 weeks of pregnancy or weighing 500 grams or above.

The Neonatal Unit at Medcare Women & Children Hospital is dedicated to giving your infant the best neonatal intensive care available while also supporting your family psychologically. We recognize that you may be experiencing emotional distress at this time. Our patient- and family-centered compassion is a major factor in why we are the preferred hospital in the region.

Procedures and Treatments under Neonatology Care

In neonatology, time is always of the essence. Because of their weakened immune systems, premature babies and newborns may experience adverse physical reactions. A neonatologist will perform specialized tests to identify and efficiently treat the newborn’s condition, depending on the symptoms and medical history of the mother and the family.

Regular checkups will be conducted following this to see if the newborn is recuperating properly and, if not, to determine the best course of action for ensuring their well-being.
