Bringing hope and healing with the love of Christ

Reproductive Medicine and Fetal Medicine are two important subspecialty areas of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Reproductive medicine is the branch that addresses the problems faced by couples desirous of having children. Fetal medicine is the specialized wing of obstetrics aiding the obstetrician to detect and treat abnormalities and growth-related problems of the unborn child while still in the mother's womb. 

Our trained fetal medicine specialists equipped with a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine with 3D and 4D probes conduct diagnostic scanning and interventional procedures.
