Get to know Neonatologist Dr. Sikander Adeni, who serves patients in Austin, Texas.
New York City, Aug 12, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Dr. Adeni is a well-versed neonatologist with a particular interest in respiratory diseases of the newborn and neonatal ethics. Providing care through Pediatrix Medical Group, he is currently the Medical Director of the NICU at Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin. He believes that it is a great honor to be able to help infants and their families during times of stress and illness.
Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin offers comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for both inpatients and outpatients and regional specialty programs including the Ascension Seton Heart Specialty Care and Transplant Center, Ascension Seton Infusion Center, and the Marialice Shivers Regional Neonatal Center. Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin was also one of the first two hospitals in Texas to receive certification as a Primary Stroke Center.
Specializing in pediatrics and neonatology, Dr. Adeni is affiliated with Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, Ascension Seton Medical Center Hays, Ascension Seton Medical Center Williamson, Ascension Seton Northwest Hospital, and Ascension Seton Southwest Hospital. Alongside his clinical role, he serves on the Affiliate Faculty of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas at Austin - Dell Medical School.
Additionally, he is on the Board of Directors of Mother's Milk Bank in Austin. One of his greatest joys in practice has been observing, first hand, the significant decrease in NEC with increasing breast milk usage in NICUs all over the country. "As a firm believer in the positive influence of breast milk in the care and development of preterm infants, I am very pleased to be practicing in a city that has access to high quality, dependable donor breast milk. I am honored to be associated with a prestigious organization that essentially sets the standard for milk banking in the country" as stated by the doctor.
Back in 1980, Dr. Adeni obtained his medical degree from Andhra Medical College in India. Upon relocating to the United States, he went on to complete his residency in pediatrics at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He also completed a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
Dedicated to clinical excellence, he is board-certified in neonatal-perinatal medicine by the American Board of Pediatrics, which exists to support and encourage the best possible health care for children by setting standards for medical training, assessing levels of competence, and encouraging pediatricians to stay up to date with medical knowledge and best practices.
Neonatology is a subspecialty of pediatrics that consists of the medical care of newborn infants, especially the ill, or premature newborns. It is a hospital-based specialty and is usually practiced in neonatal intensive care units. Neonatologists generally diagnose and treat newborns with conditions such as breathing disorders, infections, and birth defects, as well as coordinating care and medically managing newborns born prematurely, critically ill, or in need of surgery.
On a more personal note, Dr. Adeni has been married to Shubha Adeni, a pediatrician, for over 30 years. They have raised three children together (currently adults). The Adenis enjoy travelling, working out, contributing to charitable endeavors, reading, and have a keen appreciation of the natural world.
