PAEDIATRICS AND NEONATOLOGY
Sometimes, babies are born with a birth defect or illness that requires specialised care, or they may be born before the due date, giving them less time to develop in the womb. In that case, important organs like the baby's heart, lungs, stomach or their metabolism may not be developed enough to function without special help. A Neonatologist is trained specifically to handle the most complex and high-risk situations.
Our competent NICU team brings vast experience in managing complex medical and surgical conditions in newborns including prematurity, low birth asphyxia and expertise in providing ambulance services for neonates
The Pediatric Cardiology Unit at AIMS Hospital is one of the leading Centres of Excellence in Pediatric Cardiology in the region. In one of its many firsts, the AIMS Hospital is the first in Dombivli to have Pediatric and Neonatal 2D Echo facilities. This is a very important investigative modality to find out cardiac deficits in Newborns.
AIMS Hospital has the highly advanced Transoesophageal Echocardiography probe that helps intracardiac anatomy to be studied in real-time and digitally reconstructed. This enables the cardiac surgeon to plan the surgery decisively.
Optimal utilization of these modalities enables right diagnosis for the child, and the best possible intervention.
