Neonatology pertains to the baby’s first month of life. Ironically the first minute, the first hour, first day and the first month of a newborn’s life is the most vulnerable time.
There are two aspects to this - 1. Sick or premature babies needing ICU care 2. General health and well being of a newborn in the first month.
Dr. Rajath Athreya has a wealth of experience in management of all aspects of Neonatology from looking after extremely premature infants to managing newborns needing complex surgeries. While intensive care for these babies are provided in ICU settings, follow-up in outpatient clinics is equally important to keep them healthy.
Healthy babies have many issues that need attention in first month of life, services provided in OPD include: Full newborn check, issues with feeding and sleeping patterns, infantile colic, skin problems, counselling and follow up of any abnormalities detected in pregnancy scans and parenting guidance
