Neonatology Conditions

We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating critically ill newborns. The following is a list of some of the conditions we treat.

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD)/Chronic Lung Disease (CLD)

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a condition that can develop in premature infants when their lungs are not fully developed, leading to breathing problems.

Cerebral Aneurysm

A weak or thin spot on a blood vessel in the brain that balloons out and fills with blood; can occur anywhere in the brain; more common in adults than in children.

Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy

Death or long-term disability possibly caused by lack of blood flow or oxygen before, during or after birth, from a ruptured uterus, bleeding from the placenta, or cord accidents.

Meconium Aspiration Syndrome

Meconium aspiration syndrome is a condition that occurs when a newborn infant breathes in a mixture of meconium and amniotic fluid. Learn about treatment here.

Necrotizing Enterocolitis

A serious intestinal illness in babies, involving damage to intestinal tissues, which can lead to a hole in the intestines, allowing bacteria in the intestine to leak into the abdomen.

Neonatal Sepsis

A blood infection common in preterm, low-birth-weight babies, can be caused by bacteria or virus, commonly Group B streptococcus but most dangerously by E. coli.

Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension

Also called persistent pulmonary hypertension in the newborn or persistent fetal circulation syndrome, a serious breathing condition for newborns. Its cause is unknown.

Posthemorrhagic Hydrocephalus (PHH)

A build-up of fluid due to damage to blood vessels within the brain during the birth process and afterward.

Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Also called Hyaline Membrane Disease, a condition of premature infant lungs due to insufficient surfactant, a substance in the lungs that helps the air sacs stay open.
