Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and recreational therapy may also be recommended.
  • Cleft lip/cleft palate – Cleft lips and palates can be detected on an ultrasound even before the child is born. Once the child is born, surgeries are performed to repair the cleft lip or palate.
  • Clubfoot – Similar to a cleft lip, a clubfoot is recognized immediately after birth if present. Our best paediatrician will begin the treatment right from the first or second week after the child’s birth.
  • Spina Bifida – Spina bifida can typically be diagnosed from a foetal ultrasound. Depending on the severity of the condition, different treatment options may be required. Usually, prenatal surgery is performed before the 26th week of pregnancy to repair the baby’s spinal cord. 
  • Tricuspid atresia – During pregnancy, tricuspid atresia can be diagnosed during an ultrasound. The treatment for tricuspid atresia involves surgeries such as atrial septostomy, pulmonary artery band placement, Fontan procedure, shunting, or Glenn operation.
