Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology was started at the inauguration of the hospital in July 1991. Since then it has provided remarkable service towards women’s health care.

The Bangalore Hospital, being a tertiary care hospital, many complicated and critical obstetric and gynaec cases are referred from smaller units for further management. Our outpatient services cover a wide spectrum of women’s health problems with very efficient multidisciplinary input.

Obstetric Services: - These include pre-pregnancy counseling, antenatal care for both low risk and high risk (Pregnancy complicated with diabetes, hypertension, cardiac problems etc) group of patients. Investigations like ultrasound scan along with Doppler studies are done to monitor fetal wellbeing as and when required by efficient sonologists at the hospital itself. There is also good support from the laboratory, physiotherapy, Nutrition, diabetology, nephrology and cardiology units.

Painless labour by means of epidural analgesia is offered routinely to the laboring woman. Continuous electronic fetal heart rate monitoring (CTG) is available to watch the baby’s condition during delivery. Postgraduate trained resident obstetricians monitor the condition of mother and child round the clock, under guidance of senior consultants.

Emergency and elective caesareans are performed as and when indicated. Babies are seen by Pediatrician at birth. Premature, very low birth weight and very sick babies are monitored in NICU.
