LEVEL III Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)

Caring For Your Special Newborn

Neonatal surgery is the surgical correction of congenital malformations that develop while your baby is developing in your womb as well as in the first month of life. Neonatal surgery is considered when your doctor suspects anomalies in your developing baby during prenatal screening. Common malformations requiring neonatal surgery include:

  • Anorectal malformations: abnormalities of the anus and rectum, and urinary and reproductive tract in females
  • Diaphragmatic hernia: a hole in the diaphragm that causes abdominal organs to compress the lungs
  • Oesophageal atresia: narrowing of the oesophagus
  • Biliary atresia: destruction of ducts that carry bile
  • Intestinal obstructions
  • Hirschsprung's Disease: abnormality of large intestine, preventing passage of stools
  • Pyloric stenosis: narrowing where the stomach meets the intestine
  • Abdominal wall defects

Treatment may be provided while your baby is still in the womb or after birth.
