Area of expertise 

  • High-risk pregnancy: High-risk pregnancies are seen in women who have existing health issues that can interfere with normal childbirth or negatively impact the health of the baby. You will be required to see a neonatologist prior to the birthing procedure. The mother and the child are closely monitored to ensure timely medical action, if/when required.
  • Complications during childbirth: Childbirth complication is an umbrella term used for any abnormal/adverse event that may occur when a mother is in labour or during delivery. Common Childbirth complications that may call for the need for a neonatologist include failure to progress, heavy bleeding and placenta previa. 

What makes Surya Hospital stand out?
The first few weeks following childbirth are extremely crucial as it is during this time that the baby develops a proper feeding pattern and bonds with his/her parents. At the time of birth, the immune system of a baby is not fully developed and as such there are high risks of infections. Most congenital defects and abnormalities are also detected/diagnosed during this stage. Such babies require comprehensive care that focuses on their holistic development and well-being while bringing down the risks of life-threatening complications.

At Surya Hospitals, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art perinatal care integrated using the finest technology and expertise of a dedicated team of neonatologists specializing in the management of the most complex birth abnormalities, perinatal diseases and other related complications. We have a dedicated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), equipped with the latest machines and equipment that help us to take care of your little one with added precision and safety. Our team strives to offer round-the-clock care for catering to your baby’s special needs. To ensure easy access to safe breast milk in emergency situations, we also have a dedicated Human Milk Bank, adhering to stringent quality-control standards.
