Neonatology focuses exclusively on the health of newborns and the factors that can affect their survival and growth. Neonatologists typically see patients during labor and delivery, where they attend high-risk deliveries and consult with obstetricians, pediatricians, family physicians and other medical specialists. In addition to treating babies born prematurely or at a low birth weight, they also care for newborns with congenital malformations, infections and breathing problems.
Neonatologists typically complete roughly 10 years of training. After completing medical school, they become a pediatrician by completing a pediatric residency. Then they complete a neonatology fellowship to gain additional specialized experience and training.
Collaboration with Mayo Clinic
All Mayo Clinic Health System birth centers have teleneonatology, where real-time video technology connects neonatologists from Mayo Clinic with local providers in the birth center. This technology is used when a greater level of medical intervention is needed, such as newborn resuscitation or diagnosis of unusual clinical cases.
