Department of Pediatrics
Omni Their Giggles Pediatrics department is committed to improving children’s health by excelling in evidence, based learning and academic perfection. A team of qualified and experienced pediatricians is constantly working to provide quality and effective health care for children and their families with compassion and commitment in all aspects.
In line with our passion for academic excellence, a new milestone for Giggles is that we began offering postgraduate courses in pediatrics under the National Board in the 2019 to 2020 academic year.
The main principle of dealing with sick children is to have a strong knowledge of basic science. The art of having faith in the basics specializes in having regular academic sessions, all of which are led by our talented educator Dr. Radhakrishna who has been a pioneer in the field for over 30 years. The General Pediatrics team is ready to work day and night with 25 qualified pediatricians. With the help of these sub-specialized services the entire care of the child in the hospital is completed when needed. We offer the following sub-features:
- Pediatric Surgery / Urology
