NICU Developmental Follow-up

NICU Follow-Up
The NICU Developmental Clinic follows infants who were born either very small at less than 2 lbs 5 oz. or very young at less than 30 weeks gestation. We also follow children born small for their gestational age, or who have experienced a significant medical complication such as chronic lung disease, a significant brain bleed, or a diagnosed genetic disorder.


If your baby needs a clinic appointment, your NICU doctor will schedule it for you.
