UT Neonatology specialists provide round-the-clock care to critically ill and premature infants. Advances such as chemical warming mattresses and incubator light shields have helped to raise survival rates and decrease complications. Doctors also added the ability to incubate babies in the delivery room and increased the overall room temperature to improve outcomes. UT Neonatology supplies all doctors to the neonatal care units at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and the Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center at Regional One Health.
The award-winning UT Neonatology team is led by Dr. Ajay Talati, who also serves as Medical Director at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Each doctor is a member of the faculty of the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis, TN.
