Neonatal surgery is a surgical sub-specialty of pediatric surgery that consists of the surgical care of newborn infants, especially ill or premature newborn infants. Practicing surgeons exclusively focusing on neonates, infants in the first 28 days after birth, are called neonatal surgeons, and heavily coordinate with a hospital's NICU. Neonatal surgeons often perform corrective surgeries, including chest, abdominal, and urological defects. Neonatal surgeons are also heavily involved in the post-operative care of patients.

Neonatal surgery is the surgical counterpart to neonatology.
