Robby Dumford was born with a life-threatening condition called congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). His life was saved thanks to major surgery the day he was born.
Born 12 weeks early and barely more than two pounds, Mia received life-saving treatment from Cincinnati Children’s to help her overcome a devastating and often deadly bowel disease.
The Mauncy family was able to take home three healthy triplets thanks to high-tech surgery that corrected a dangerous blood flow problem while the babies were still in the womb.
These are just some of the many successes from our neonatology program, one of the biggest and most sophisticated of its kind in the country. Our program was ranked No. 3 in the nation in the 2014-15 list of Best Children’s Hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report.
We provide care to more than 18,000 newborns born per year at a dozen hospitals in and near Cincinnati. We also care for more than 700 critically ill infants a year at three neonatal intensive care units. We support the tiniest preterm infants and we provide advanced surgical care to newborns with the rarest, most complex birth defects.
Our Division of Neonatology is part of the Perinatal Institute at Cincinnati Children’s, which also includes our Divisions of Perinatal Biology, Reproductive Sciences, Pulmonary Biology, Developmental Biology and the Cincinnati Fetal Center.
“We provide outstanding clinical care to newborns with complex conditions, but we do even more,” says James Greenberg, MD, co-director of the Perinatal Institute. “We conduct important research to determine the causes of preterm birth and we are deeply involved in our community with intensive programs to improve prenatal care and reduce preterm births.”
“We have a culture of collaboration that brings physicians from various disciplines into teams with nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists, therapists and other specialty staff,” Greenberg says. “This culture also helps us use our research work to improve patient care.”
