Neonatology

Neonatology is the medical specialty concerning newborn infants. Newborns are considered a distinct period of childhood due to both their physiology and their susceptibility to diseases.

Neonatology focuses on the health and diseases of newborn infants. Specialists in this field, called neonatologists, conduct research and provide care for premature, low birth weight, postnatal complications, or generally newborn infants.

The term “Neonatology” is derived from the word “neonatal,” referring to newborns. This branch of medicine deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in newborn infants. The period up to 28 days after birth is referred to as the neonatal period. Physicians specialized in neonatology are called neonatologists.

Diagnostic and treatment procedures in neonatology include bedside ultrasonography, bedside electroencephalography, echocardiography, retinopathy examination, chest tube insertion, phototherapy, percutaneous catheterization, and blood exchange.

Neonatologists intervene in respiratory problems, feeding issues, infections, and other medical problems of premature infants. They also take care of infants with congenital anomalies or genetic diseases.

For any adverse events during childbirth, it is necessary to have a pediatrician with “Neonatal Resuscitation” training present in the delivery room or operating theater.

Our hospital provides necessary support for all newborns requiring intensive care. With the aid of modern medical equipment and up-to-date information, we reunite babies with their families quickly and ensure that families have access to the necessary resources and education.

Neonatologists specialize in identifying, treating, and preventing various issues in newborn infants. These infants may require special care after birth and are typically monitored in neonatal intensive care units.

Considered a subspecialty within pediatrics, neonatology focuses on the unique needs of newborn infants. Neonatologists work within a multidisciplinary team to ensure the best possible health outcomes for these vulnerable patients.
