Premature and critically ill newborns need surgery soon after birth to address defects or abnormalities. Operating on critical newborns requires highly specialized care. The unit at Freya provides exceptional neonatal surgery services for newborns with congenital and acquired conditions. Pediatric surgeons meet with expecting families to counsel them about abnormalities discovered during a prenatal screening. Sometimes steps are taken to treat babies while they are still in the womb, offering them the best chance for a healthy start.
