Pediatrics & Pediatrics Surgery
Centre for Children
Treating kids sensitively since 20 years...
The Department of Pediatrics at the Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute was started on 11 Jan 1998 under the guidance of Dr N B Kumta, Dr Ajay Sankhe and Dr Sanjay Prabhu. Since then, the department has grown from 4 beds to 35 beds over the years, with the availability of all major pediatric specialties, making it one of the best centers in North Mumbai for neonatal and child healthcare.
The state-of-the-art NICU, PICU and ward facilities available at the Centre help in dealing with any kind of emergency. Our Centre is equipped with 24x7 radiology and pathological services to diagnose and provide round-the-clock support to the patients. Emergency Ambulance services are available to assist sick children at the earliest. We are a tertiary care referral center for hospitals and nursing homes between Borivali to Dahanu for complicated neonatal (NICU) & pediatric cases (PICU), especially for critical patients for multispecialty care under one roof.
Our department manages more than a thousand newborns (including more than hundred premature babies every year) and more than 1500 indoor pediatric patients. The department consists of an experienced team of four dedicated pediatric consultants, 8 pediatric residents and 20 trained pediatric nurses. Our NICU handles premature babies as small as 700 g and 27 weeks of gestation and other newborns with medical, surgical, neurological & cardiac complications with best management protocols, infection control policy and standard of care.
DNB pediatric curriculum was started in June 2019 with a structured and regular academic program. We conduct regular Pediatric CMEs, also engage in conducting research activities and doing regular publications.
