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.
