Neonatal and Foetal Surgery

Neonatal Surgery is the sub-discipline within paediatric surgery that deals with surgically treating congenital and acquired illnesses in newborns and infants up to one month old.

This is a highly complex sub-speciality that only exists at tertiary paediatric centres. The past few decades have brought about important advances, thanks to improvements in diagnostic techniques, neonatal intensive care and anaesthetics, and surgical techniques and materials. These have radically changed the prognosis for both birth defects and acquired surgical pathologies in newborns.
