Fetal medicine

Fetal medicine is a specialty that deals with the monitoring and assessment of the growth and development of the fetus at various stages during the pregnancy. It offers diagnosis and treatment of complications which may arise in unborn babies. 

It is a comprehensive service throughout pregnancy in the diagnosis and management of all fetal conditions enabling early detection and management of fetal illnesses and abnormalities that may be harmful for the fetus or the mother during the term of pregnancy or after birth. 

At Sakra World Hospital, Fetal medicine operates as a specialty headed by Dr. Anju Namashivaya, under the umbrella of Sakra Institute or Woman and Child Health. Dr. Anju Namashivaya has completed Fellowship in Fetal Medicine and is accredited by the Fetal Medicine Foundation (UK) for specialized fetal scans and risk assessment protocols.

Our fetal medicine specialty operates to provide a holistic approach towards fetal care and works in sync with the OBG division to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. We conduct all kinds of specialized diagnostic and fetal screening tests necessary for monitoring the developing fetus. We offer a range of services including fetal scans and procedures, genetic services, gynecological scans and procedures. 

With the help of these facilities we ensure efficient prenatal diagnosis and thus improved prognosis before and after birth.
