In the past few decades, the continuous development of early neonatal monitoring and treatment technology has improved the early survival rate of premature babies and babies born with low weight and high quality. However, the incidence of neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis has not decline. Therefore, it is necessary to actively carry out prevention and surgical treatment based on neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis. The purpose of this article is to discuss the prevention and surgical treatment of neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis. 140 neonates with neonates admitted from October 2013 to October 2019 were selected, and NEC patients were divided into control and in the experimental group, preventive and surgical treatments were performed to observe their effects. The results of the study show that the control group defaults to a group with a fasting time of 0 days. The number of people is 70. There are 60 cases of infants with feeding intolerance, accounting for 85.7%, and the experimental components are 1-7. 8-14, 15-21 three cases, a group of 1-7 days of fasting time, the number of 27 people, feeding intolerance of 11 cases of newborns, accounting for 40.7%. It can be seen that the prevention and surgical treatment based on neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis is of great significance to the health of newborns.
