The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at our client hospital in Riyadh provides treatment for women with complicated and high risk pregnancies as well as those with complex gynecologic problems and gynecologic malignancies. It also provides state of the art treatment for infertile couples where advanced reproductive technology is needed. In this process, clinical research is done to optimize patient care and to ensure staff development.
The department consists of three sections:
The Section of Perinatology, deals with a variety of high risk mothers suffering from different medical illnesses complicating their pregnancies. In addition, a large volume of work is related to fetal abnormalities due to genetic disorders, multifactorial inheritance, infections and others. The department is the leader in the area of iso-immunization in pregnancy and a large number of intrauterine transfusions are performed annually for those cases. Furthermore, the department performs amniocentesis, cordocentesis, chorionic villus sampling and in-utero shunting procedures.
The IVF Unit, deals mainly with difficult infertility cases like severe male factor infertility that need special male procedures involving reproductive endocrinologists, urologists and embryologists. It offers pre-implantation genetic diagnosis for patients with certain genetic disorders referred from all over the Kingdom.
The unit of gynecologic oncology deals with all types of gynecologic malignancies and has experts in the field of minimally invasive and radical gynecologic surgeries. A multidisciplinary team approach is adopted for the management of women with gynecologic cancers.
Prior to offering a permanent (1-2 years) contract, the hospital may invite doctors for a one-month locum. This provides an opportunity to visit the hospital, check out the department, and see Riyadh and Saudi Arabia. This gives you the time to decide if all your critical needs and desires such as geography, income potential, practice style, administrative agendas, and community profile line up with your long-term goals.
