“Our motto is to work with every woman personally, with our top priority being the success of every woman who comes to us and to be able to bring a smile on her face.If a woman has problems related to her uterus like fibroid, adenomyosis, ovarian cyst, or endometriosis we clear them by Laparoscopic surgery and give her tremendous relief.

At the same time, if the woman has fertility issues, we try as much to help her conceive naturally. When all tests fail and there are practically no chances for natural conception, we then resort to IVF/ICSI and make her conceive. Once she gets conceived we are there to take care of her all through the pregnancy and she can have the delivery safely at our hospital itself. So, the entire journey of a woman is completed at Firm Hospitals without having to run from pillar to post of various hospitals. Every patient at Firm Hospitals gets individual attention from me and that’s how we are different from others!

Today’s women are different. They are knowledgeable and empowered. They need special comforting and compassionate treatment facility, where patients receive individualized care and feel at ease!”
