  Speciality Services / Obstetrics and Gynaecology  

The original 'raison d'etre' of the hospital, this Department has grown today from the small, 4 bed maternity clinic of 1912 to provide comprehensive services in Reproductive Health, including Assisted Reproductive Technologies. It grew under the aegis of Dr. Mrs. Banoo Coyaji, who joined it in the year 1944, to a full-fledged Obstetric and Gynecology service. It offers comprehensive care for women with normal and high-risk pregnancies, infertility and reproductive endocrine problems, and gynecologic diseases including cancer. The Department was the first to offer endoscopic and oncologic surgery in Pune in 1972. The Obstetric Unit has been a recognized referral center for pregnancies with high risk and complications, from within and around Pune.
