What is Neonatology?
Neonatology is a branch of medical that deals with newborn intensive care units. The certified people who can manage the newborn intensive care are called as Neonatologists. They generally provide services like diagnosis and treatment for breathing disorders, infections, birth defects etc. Our Neonatologists are trained to handle most complex and high risk situations with 100 percent care.
Neonatologists have special training required to evaluate the problems in newborns and treat them properly. These neonatologists take care of newborn babies who are born before their bodies are formed.Neonatologists are passionate and genuine, willing to work long hours to takecare of newborn babies. Patience is the main qualification of neonatologists to show sensitivity towards the little patients.
These days as premature baby births are grown rapidly there is lot of importance to Neonatologists. There is difference between Neonatologists and Pediatricians.
