We came across Dr.Uma Ramesh in PSFC hospital through internet positive reviews while searching for nearby infertility hospitals. We went in there after having 2 IVF attempt failures from one of the reputed fertility hospital in Neelangarai Chennai with two years break on treatments. Finally I must say, it is really a Divine guidance from Dr.Uma Ramesh. She was very simple and professional in handling the issue and suggested us simple treatment options. First time when we entered her room, She welcomed us with smile...she already gone through all our past treatment history shared by us from the file and had a discussion with their embryologist on next level of treatment options...and then she started suggesting us the perfect solution for our problem with minimal medications and ERA test. Within 3 months of her treatment, we got a positive result. Yes, Dr.Uma Ramesh makes our life more meaningful and now it's 6th week of pregnancy...Our special thanks to Dr.Uma Ramesh, Dr.Chitra Shankar, Embryologist Madhu Sir and all caring sweet Sisters in PSFC hospital.Thank you so much.

Q: Who is a Gynaecologist?
A: Gynaecology is the medical specialization that deals with the female reproductive system. Hence, a Gynaecologist is a doctor who specializes in the health and the problems of the female reproductive system that includes the vagina, ovaries, uterus and breasts. Additionally, gynaecologists are also trained in Obstetrics and hence can deal with pregnancy and child birth too.
Q: Is there a difference between Gynaecologist & Obstetrician?
A: Where a Gynaecologist deals with the health and wellbeing of the female reproductive system, an Obstetrician specializes in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. A Gynaecologist is trained in Obstetrics too. Hence, when a woman is pregnant, she can either consult a Gynaecologist or an Obstetrician, but for issues related to the female reproductive system, she should consult with a Gynaecologist.
Q: What are the common procedures performed by a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician?
A: Gynaecologist: 1. Dilation and Curettage (D&C) – The uterine lining is removed either by suction or with a curette. 2. Hysteroscopy– A hysteroscopy treats minor conditions inside the uterus in a non-invasive manner. Obstetrician: 1. Normal delivery - An Obstetrician helps in childbirth. 2. C-section – In case of any complications, the Obstetrician operates on the patient to ensure safe childbirth.

Consulting a Gynaecologist can be a great way to understand and evaluate the reason for infertility and explore the various avenues of treatment available. In case of infertility in women, you should consult with your Gynaecologist/Obstetrician, who will then refer to a specialist if required.
