Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP)/ Abortion is a procedure that enables a woman to opt out of an unwanted pregnancy. Medical procedure for ending a pregnancy at any time before the foetus has attained the stage of viability is called Medical Termination of Pregnancy /abortion. It is not a family planning method but it is a reliable method of terminating unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. An MTP/abortion can be induced or spontaneous. A spontaneous abortion occurs when a pregnancy terminates without any medical or surgical intervention, as in the case of a miscarriage. Induced abortions involve surgical or medical procedures for termination of the pregnancy.
Under MTP (Medical Termination of Pregnancy) Act of 1971 India any woman married or unmarried can terminate an unwanted pregnancy through abortion. Reasons for ending pregnancies can be numerous. Some well-known reasons are:

There is substantial risk that if the child would born it would suffer from physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously challenged.
Pregnancy occuring as a result of failure of any contraceptive device or method used by woman.
Pregnancy occuring due to rape.
If the pregnant woman is suffering from any kind of mental disorder or mental illeness..
Any Hospital or Medical Facility which is registered under the MTP Act with the Government of the State can carry out MTP or Abortion as per the laid down provisions. Pregnancy upto 12 weeks can be terminated by any qualified gynaecologist who is registered under the MTP Act and the Centre is also registered.
Under the provisions of the MTP Act and the PNDT Act the pregnancy between 12-20 weeks can be terminated at a centre which is specifically registered and has two gynaecologists. The reasons for termination of the pregnancy are to be recorded and verified by two gynaecologists

A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience.

We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.

All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
