High Risk Pregnancy & Fetal Medicine
The department was started in 2009 as a first of its kind in the state of Kerala, under the leadership of Dr. Vidyalekshmy. Since its inception, the unit has catered to patients where there are severe maternal complications and problems preceding and during pregnancy.
Procedures & Treatments
So far around 10,000 high-risk cases have been seen in the unit. The maternal-fetal outcome is at par with international standards. Level 3B NICU and the state-of-the-art facilities rendered by the labor ward and senior obstetricians add to the merit of the unit. High Dependency Unit (HDU) supports the care for critically ill mothers. The sub-specialties like pediatric cardiology, pediatric nephrology and endocrinology are the other highlights of the KIMSHEALTH maternal medicine unit.
KIMSHEALTH is also selected as a center for FNB training for high-risk OB & fetal medicine by national board of examination.
