The KUTRRH Obstetrics and Gynaecology, typically called Maternity Services, takes care of the pregnant woman, her unborn child and problems related to the reproductive system. Having commenced our operations in November 2020, we offer care on a 24-hour basis.
Currently, we run a gynaecology outpatient clinic, which functions purely on a referral model. Our patients are referrals from our Outpatient Department, and patients are attended to by other Specialists/Other departments within the hospital. We also accept referrals from other health facilities throughout the country and region, who form a majority of our patients.
With Oncology being a central pillar of the Hospital – Cancer-related to the Reproductive Organs of the body, such as Cancer of the Cervix, uterus, and Ovary, form a bulk of the patients we attend to both in our clinics as well as patients admitted to the hospital. We also provide screening, diagnosis and treatment of the same.
The Obs/GYN department offers various forms of Surgeries, including:
- Benign Gynaecology such as Fibroids
- Minimal Access Surgery such as Laparoscopy
- Surgeries related to the Reproductive Organs of the body
