Gynecology and Obstetrics in Miyapur
In some traditions, it is believed that giving birth to a child means the mother is reborn too. At Galen, we ensure that both mother and child have a smile on their faces. From pregnancy to delivery, and afterwards too. Our healthcare professionals go the extra mile to see that the Obstetrics, Gynecology & Pediatrics, from Galen Hospital, is a place where to-be mothers feel comfortable and cared for. A sanctum that loves them back unconditionally, a nest that envelopes them with a sense of security, warmth and care.
To cater to the special needs of expectant mothers, we have created ‘Season of Smiles,’ a unique program that offers 9 months of dedicated care – from pre-delivery to the due date and 3 months’ after the delivery. A one stop solution complemented by specialized care for all birthing needs that ensures a pleasant, comfortable and all-encompassing journey towards childbirth.
Our philosophy towards childbirth is that of blending medical care with compassion, and support.
As a full-service Birthing Centre, we establish a relationship with the new parents from the very first time they walk into our premises. There is a bond of trust that is formed with the new mother and the care providers. Our caring doctors, birthing specialists and nursing staff, adopting a personalized approach, ensure that the overall experience is comfortable, safe and supportive – an experience that does not go with one shoe size fits all, rather it is tailor made to suit your needs.
Antenatal checkup – Most people think that doctors will inundate the moms-to-be with a series of tests and ultrasounds. But that is where Galen doctors are different. Our doctors advise tests and ultrasounds only when necessary. Our aim is to assist you in every step of the way to make your pregnancy safer by checking the overall wellness of both mother and child. Right from the first visit, our antenatal checkup includes the necessary care to the mother in order to identify any complications such as anemia. The slabs for the visit are divided into 14 to 26 weeks, 28 to 34 weeks, and 36 weeks and term.
High risk pregnancies – A high-risk pregnancy involves a higher health risk for the mother, the baby, or both of them, especially if the mother is over the age of 35 or under the age group of 17. Our doctors monitor the development closely in order to avoid complications and risks.
Cesarean section – Cesarean delivery (C-section) encompasses delivering the baby through surgical incisions made in the abdomen and the uterus. Our doctors go for a C-section only if there are some complications involved, and otherwise try for normal delivery. We recommend C-section in case if the labor is not progressing normally, the baby’s heartbeat is a concern or if the baby is in an unusual position, the labor starts too early, placenta covers the cervix, loop of umbilical cord slips through the cervix in front of the baby, or if there is any other health concern.
Uterine and Cervical diseases – Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of the cervix which is situated in the lower part of the uterus, that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cervical cancer. Uterine cancer (endometrial carcinoma, womb cancer, or corpus carcinoma) usually originates from the cells of the uterine mucosa.
LAVH or Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy – This is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries and cervix through the vagina or the birth canal, with the aid of a small operating telescope, called a laparoscope. LAVH combines both laparoscopy and hysterectomy. Laparoscopy is used to look inside the abdomen whereas hysterectomy is a surgery for removing the uterus. LAVH has a shorter postoperative recovery time spanning a few hours to a few days.
Ovarian diseases – Ovaries are a crucial part of the female reproductive system. It is necessary to treat the problems pertaining to ovaries for a healthier way of life. Some problems with the ovaries are ovarian cancer, cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOD, and premature ovarian failure.
Gynecological Cancers – Any cancer that starts in a woman’s reproductive organs is termed as a gynecological cancer, such as ovarian, uterine, vaginal, vulvar and cervical cancer. Our doctors perform a thorough diagnosis so that treatment can be done effectively.
Menopause disorders – The end of menstruation cycle is termed as menopause. After a woman has gone 12 months without menstruation, then she is diagnosed with menopause. A natural biological process, menopause has three stages, namely, perimenopause (where cycles become irregular), menopause (where final menstrual period happens) and postmenopause (12 months without final period)
Puberty related disorders – Puberty related disorders are mainly of 4 types, namely, delayed puberty (when puberty hasn’t started by age 13), precocious puberty(when puberty begins too early before the age of 7 or 8 in girls), Contrasexual pubertal development or development of male characteristics in females and premature thelarche which is characterized by breast development without any other signs of puberty.
