Pune (Maharashtra) [India], January 19: Women possess distinct biological characteristics compared to men, and their complex physiological systems necessitate superior healthcare facilities. Throughout their lives, females of all age groups encounter bodily changes and health issues that significantly impact their overall well-being. According to a 2019 WHO survey, ischaemic heart disease (IHD) is the leading cause of death in women, contributing to a standalone mortality rate of 8.9 million. Despite the digital age, women in both rural and urban areas confront multiple health disorders due to a lack of awareness.
Jehangir Hospital boasts dedicated departments focused on various aspects of women’s healthcare. These departments, led by experienced medical experts and well-equipped medical infrastructure, demonstrate a commitment to addressing any issue related to women’s care, providing sustainable solutions for their well-being.
Jehangir Hospital’s Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department is a one-stop hub for women’s health needs. They handle everything from high-risk pregnancies, ensuring the well-being of both mother and baby, to managing conditions like PCOS/PCOD and menstrual health issues. Additionally, they specialise in advanced procedures like laparoscopy, offering minimally invasive solutions for various gynaecological concerns. Overall, it’s a comprehensive centre providing expert care across obstetric and gynecologic cases.
“From assisting moms through high-risk pregnancies to managing a variety of gynaecological issues like PCOS/PCOD and menstrual health difficulties, we are committed to providing holistic care. We prioritise minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy, to provide our patients with faster recovery times and better results. Working in an environment that prioritises women’s health and gives us the opportunity to significantly impact their lives is a luxury.” says Dr Nina Mansukhani Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologist Jehangir Hospital.
Jehangir Hospital’s Breast Care Centre is dedicated to women’s breast health, addressing concerns such as development, lumps, swelling, or any physical changes. With well-trained experts and cutting-edge technology, the centre diagnoses and treats various conditions, including breast cancer. The comprehensive approach includes recommending therapies and procedures like Integrative Oncology, Oncoplastic techniques, and patient-centric programs such as Genetic counselling, Oncopsychology counselling, Yoga, nutrition counselling. Annual Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are conducted to improve the Quality of Life (QoL) for both breast cancer patients and survivors, ensuring holistic care and support.
“The approach to breast cancer treatment has evolved. While mastectomy (total breast removal) was once the go-to option, it often brought about several challenges such as mutilation and depression severely affecting quality of life. Today several studies have actually reported reduced cure rates for patients undergoing mastectomy. In India, it’s still commonly chosen. However, oncoplastic surgeries offer a promising alternative. These procedures blend cancer surgery with plastic surgery techniques, providing more options and preserving a sense of normalcy. It’s heartening to see these advancements giving patients more choices and hope in their fight against breast cancer. At Jehangir, we make sure our patients do know their options.” says Dr. CB Koppiker, Sr Consultant Onco Surgeon and Director, Onco Sciences Department, Jehangir Hospital.
