Care Philosophy

When I decided I wanted to be in neonatology, it was really all about being a master of a small field. I didn't want to practice such a broad field of medicine - such a generalized field of medicine - where I felt that I didn't have absolute and complete knowledge base about everything that was going on. I have studied extensively a number of medications - that may potentially be on the market in the next 10 to 20 years - that will help decrease injury patterns in baby brains. It's about seeing the small successes because intensive care often you have to measure success by small markers, not necessarily the large ones. So it's when an infant comes off a ventilator. It's when a family finally gets to hold their baby for the first time. They haven't held them in three weeks because they were so critically ill, and they finally get to hold them. It's when a family comes back three years later with a toddler who's running around and speaking - who I remember was so critically ill for weeks or months on end - who now has a lovely life and runs and plays with their siblings. And the families come back and say, Look, this is what we have. So those are the moments that I know that I made the right choice.Read more
