Background

Natalie Rintoul, MD, is an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and attending neonatologist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

After receiving her medical degree at Queen's University in Canada, Dr. Rintoul completed her pediatric residency at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and her neonatal fellowship at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Rintoul is not only interested in the care of the neonate with congenital anomalies requiring neonatal surgery, but also those neonates requiring heart-lung bypass (ECMO). She is co-director of the Neonatal Surgical Team, and medical director of the Neonatal ECMO Program. She is also a fetal consultant for the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.

Dr. Rintoul’s research interests include management of myelomeningocele, pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension in congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and perioperative care of the surgical neonate. She is the chair of the Neonatal Perioperative Committee. Dr. Rintoul is also a key member of the Special Delivery Unit, involved in the creation and implementation of delivery room guidelines for infants with congenital anomalies.
