High Risk Pregnancy and Fetal Medicine

The department was started in the year 2009 as a first of its kind in the state of Kerala under the leadership of Dr Vidyalekshmy. Since inception, the unit has catered to patients where there is severe maternal complications and problems preceding pregnancy and which occurs during pregnancy. So far around 10,000 high risk cases have been seen in the unit. And the maternal fetal outcome is at par with international standards.Level 3B NICU and the state of the art facilities rendered by the labor ward and senior obstetricians add to the merit of the unit. High Dependency Unit (HDU) supports the care for critically ill mothers. The sub specialties like Pediatric Cardiology, pediatric nephrology and endocrinology are other highlights for KIMS maternal medicine unit.
