Department and Faculty
The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine includes more than 100 physicians specializing in more than 40 areas of pediatric and adolescent medicine who provide care ranging from routine checkups to complex surgical procedures. Annually, Mayo Clinic treats more than 50,000 children and adolescents, including some 5,000 hospital patients.
Within the department, the Division of Neonatal Medicine includes seven neonatologists, each of whom holds an academic appointment in Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. All members of the faculty teach medical students and residents, and all supervise patient care in the intensive care nurseries and delivery room.
With nearly 2,500 births annually at Mayo Clinic, including 500 high-risk deliveries, the Division of Neonatal Medicine cares for babies with a broad range of conditions, including extreme prematurity, complex congenital heart disease and myriad surgical conditions. Due to this challenging patient population, our division works closely with members of the Division of Maternal and Fetal Medicine, the Center for Congenital Heart Disease and the Division of Pediatric Surgery.
