Apnea of Prematurity

Apnea is a term for the absence of breathing for more than 20 seconds. It can occur in full-term babies, but is more common in premature babies. The more premature the baby, the greater the chances that apnea will occur.

Premature Infant

A baby born before 37 weeks of pregnancy is considered premature, that is, born before complete maturity.

Retinopathy of Prematurity

Our specialized pediatric ophthalmologists are experts at screening and treating retinopathy of prematurity in premature infants.

Transient Tachypnea of the Newborn

Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is a term for a mild respiratory problem of babies that begins after birth and lasts about three days.

Congenital Heart Disease

According to the American Heart Association, about nine of every 1,000 babies born in the United States have a congenital (present at birth) heart defect. This is a problem that occurs as the baby's heart is developing during pregnancy, before the baby is born. Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defects.

Omphalocele

An omphalocele is a birth defect, which is an abnormality that occurs before birth as a fetus is forming in its mother's uterus.
