About Neonatal Surgery

Neonatal Surgery is a surgical process performed on newborn babies. This Surgery is needed only when the condition is too critical. After the birth of newborn babies, sometimes they are born with some defects or abnormalities that need to be operated on. These newborns need a highly specialized level of care during the Surgery.  Our hospital provides the best pediatric neonatal surgeon in Jaipur.

Pregnancy scans frequently show conditions arising from improper fetal growth. Neonatal surgeons play a vital role in treating these disorders. Two typically treated diseases are gastroschisis and exomphalos, each with particular characteristics. Exomphalos is a disease resulting from the inappropriate growth of the baby’s abdominal wall, causing the bowel to protrude outside the little one’s body. The harshness of exomphalos can change, ranging from mild to complicated cases.

Gastroschisis is a typical condition that needs neonatal surgery. It implicates making a hole in the abdominal wall near the umbilical cord, permitting the bowel to float willingly in the amniotic fluid. This can be the reason for inflammation due to disclosure to urine and feces, assembling surgery required to return the bowel to the abdominal cavity and block the hole.

What Does a Neonatal Surgeon Do?

A neonatal Surgeon is a type of pediatric surgeon. He performs surgeries on newborns with congenital disabilities or abnormalities impacting the abdominal and chest regions. 

First, he diagnoses the problem with the newborn baby. And then, He performs this operation to correct the defects of the urogenital tract as well. He can use the ultrasound machine to check for physical defects in the growing baby. 

When To See a Neonatologist?

If your baby goes through the following conditions, you must see a Neonatologist.

  • If your pregnancy is in critical condition.
  • A fetus with a congenital disorder
  • If your baby is injured during delivery.
  • If your baby is born with a disease or infection.
  • If the baby is born prematurely.

What To Expect from a Neonatologist?

Neonatalogist tells you about the disorder or conditions the fetus is suspected of having. He also discusses the treatment strategies before the delivery of the baby. The neonatologist will monitor the condition of your pregnancy until the baby’s birth. After the baby’s birth, they will take your baby to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for immediate care for their health.
