Additional Information:
Dr. Vidavalur has trained abroad and in the United States. He comes to Ithaca from Cumberland, Maryland, where he was an attending neonatologist for five years. “I was drawn here by the beauty of the area, the diversity, and the school system,” says Vidavalur. “It has been a wonderful experience
working with the staff in the NICU and with the medical center’s management team, and I’ve had good support from the local pediatricians.”

Vidavalur has special interest and expertise in treating drug-addicted babies, which is a growing problem in this country. “I am also interested in global health, specifically neonatology in developing countries,” he says. He is hoping to join with local university students who are working to create low-cost technologies that could improve mortality rates among newborns in the developing world.
