The experts at Apollomedics Super Specialty Hospital have performed many complex surgeries, which weren’t possible at other hospitals. Some of these surgeries may be considered medical miracles too. In one such case, the medical team at Apollomedics Super Specialty Hospital saved a 24-week-old fetus. The patient previously had two miscarriages, thus this pregnancy was quite precious. Patient’s amniotic membrane got damaged at around 24 weeks of pregnancy, due to which the amniotic fluid leaked out and it had become very difficult to save the fetus. To save the fetus, Specialist of the Obstetrics and Gynecology and Fetal Medicine of Apollomedics Super Specialty Hospital, Dr. Bhumika Bansal, used the amnio patch technique. This was the first time this technique was used in any private hospital of the state. Through this technique, the pregnancy stretched for 3 to 4 weeks. After which the child was delivered at about 29 weeks. With the efforts of Dr. Anubhav of the Department of Neonatology, the child was discharged safely.
