V.G. Saraf Memorial Hospital
Paediatrics and Neonatology at Saraf Hospital
The Department is headed by Dr Sashidharan who has 3 decades of experience in handling complex general pediatric cases. The team which he has built is well versed in assessing the health-related problems of our young patients. The management of illnesses in the pediatrics involves a holistic approach whereby the needs of the child are kept in mind without subjecting them to unwarranted testing and preventing the use of invasive treatment therapies as far as possible. However, when the need arises the children have an extremely proactive neonatal and pediatric ICU team which helps in getting them back to health as soon as possible.
Dr. Miriam is our Neonatologist with a special interest in critical care medicine of children and she is in overall charge of the Neonatal ICU and critical care unit. Our critical care facilities are amongst the best in the region with a Level II NICU which is equipped with the state of the art Ventilators, CPAP machines, Infusion pumps, Phototherapy units and baby warmers.
