Fetal Medicine experts are concerned with the health of the fetus at every stage
Deeply inspired by her heritage, Dr. Akanksha Bansal (M.B.B.S, DMRD), Fellow in fetal medicine has single-mindedly worked towards equipping herself to serve society as best as she can.
Dr. Akanksha Bansal sees it as her responsibility to bear this proverbial torch handed down to her and Garg Fetal Medicine Centre is but a single step in this direction. Garg Fetal Medicine Center is an initiative dedicated exclusively for all the diagnostic services pertaining to the care of unborn fetus. The one and only fetal medicine center in 100 km radius in Sirsa District. First center to introduce fetal echocardiography and invasive studies.
Our mission is to leverage the latest practices and technology in fetal medicine to provide the highest quality care for expectant mothers, experiencing, either normal or high-risk pregnancies.
What exactly is fetal medicine and how does it help?
Fetal medicine consultants are trained to expertly diagnose and possibly address abnormalities in unborn babies. Fetal Medicine is a field whose scope is far-reaching – from performing routine ultrasound scans for low risk pregnancies to complicated interventional procedures to detect and/or mitigate risks in high risk pregnancies.While a majority of mothers experience uncomplicated pregnancies, in the rare cases of complications, consultants work closely with obstetricians to plan the management of treatment.
For instance, if a mother is at low risk for delivering a child with a chromosomal problem, only the routine scans will be recommended (each patient is at liberty to choose if she wants to undergo intensive testing for confirmation). However, if a mother is at high risk to deliver a child with chromosomal abnormalities, invasive procedures such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) will be recommended to confirm the disorder. This would provide the patient, her family and the obstetrician with information to plan the management of the pregnancy, delivery and post-natal support.
