Some of the services that we offer:
Subfertility evaluation and management
Infertility is the inability of a sexually active non-contracepting couple to achieve pregnancy in one year. It is a common problem with a global prevalence. The initial treatment strategy incorporates nutritionist consultation and lifestyle modifications for women who are obese or underweight, and endocrinology referral for those with hormone problems. Broadly, the treatment of subfertility in the female partner may be categorized into ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization or IVF.
A dedicated Andrology Clinic at Stork Home caters to the needs of men with fertility problems. Both infertility and its treatment can lead to emotional and psychological stress and significantly impact the quality of life of these couples. Catering to the emotional needs is an integral part of the treatment plan and psychological counselling by experts can be solicited when needed.
The Infertility division has been instrumental in the formulation of management protocols and streamlining of the infertility services. After evaluation of both partners, the treatment plan is decided by the treating consultant based on standard international guidelines. Evaluation by hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, and surgical correction of tubal blocks and malformed uteri, removal of fibroids and cysts are some of the fertility-related procedures that are performed by consultants trained and experienced in endoscopic surgery. The team strives to achieve success rates in comparison with international standards by keeping abreast with recent scientific advances and offering evidence-based treatment.
Urogynecology involves assessment, investigations, and treatment of women with urinary incontinence (leakage of urine), prolapse (mass or lump in vagina), recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder pain and problems following pelvic floor injury at childbirth such as vaginal pain. Urogynecology Clinic is a one-stop clinic to evaluate and treat women presenting with urinary incontinence, frequent urination, sudden urge to pass urine, painful urination, difficulty in emptying the bladder and recurrent infections. We work with physiotherapists to provide comprehensive care towards achieving control of the bladder function (continence). Some women might need a special test called Urodynamics to evaluate bladder function.
Childbirth trauma can sometimes cause damage (tears) to the muscles surrounding the anal canal (motion passage) known as the sphincter muscles. These tears are called 3rd and 4th degree perineal tears or obstetric anal sphincter injuries. They can cause distressing symptoms such as anal incontinence (leakage of motion), urgency to pass motion, dyspareunia (pain during intercourse) and perineal pain (pain at suture site near vagina and anal region) which are reported in 30–50% of women with a clinically recognized anal sphincter injury.
The Perineal Clinic provides a dedicated setting where all women with such injuries can be examined by clinicians with expertise in this field. This helps to standardize follow up care and provides an opportunity for debriefing and clarification of any doubts about the events surrounding the delivery process. Counselling can also be provided about the mode of delivery in future pregnancies. Women with poor outcomes despite adequate repair are managed in consultation with a colorectal surgeon.
