ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department has been functioning since 2003. Nowadays, the Department provides a full scope of diagnostics and treatment of babies with congenital malformations of different types of severity. The doctors do their upmost to preserve lives and health of little patients, giving hope for future.
Every year more than 200 patients with congenital pathologies get treatment in the Department. About 80% of them undergo surgery. In especially severe and critical conditions in newborns with malformations, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used.
Admission to hospital is made according to the decision of prenatal consilium by multidisciplinary team of obstetrician-gynecologist, geneticist, ultrasound diagnostician and neonatal surgeon.
The operating theater is located in the Department, i.e. there is no negative impact of transportation of the babies to the surgical block and back, and this reduces the risk of infections and complications in the intra- and postoperative period. After surgery, the baby stays in the intensive care room and followed-up by the anesthesiologists-resuscitators.
