BLK Centre For Child Health >> Treatment Offered >> Neonatology
Neonatal surgery deals exclusively with newborns who are born with congenital problems and require surgical correction. These babies require intensive care, beginning prenatally. At the time of prenatal screening, if any anomalies are discovered, a pediatric surgeon meets with the expecting families to counsel them regarding the way forward. The prenatal visits are used to plan and prepare for the operation that will be needed after birth.
At BLK, we offer the best possible care for the newborn during the entire process of surgery. Our state-of-the-art operating room and neonatal intensive care unit provide the latest advances in equipment. In addition, we have fully equipped newborn transport team that can safely bring the newborn for specialised care.
