Paediatrician

Vomiting bile in a newborn baby is a very serious symptom. It is usually due to obstruction or blockage of the baby's intestines. This little baby will require an operation to correct this problem and should make a good recovery.He should be treated in a hospital where there is a paediatric surgeon who is able to perform this operation.
