The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at KMC Manipal was established in 1955 and is a multi-specialty department providing high quality patient care in the areas of antenatal care, postnatal welfare, infertility, oncology and urogynaecology.

The department brings together first-rate clinical services with an updated academic curriculum and advanced level of research. The vision is to establish a centre of excellence for the reproductive health needs of women, train the generation next and be involved in expanding research.


Clinical Services

The Department provides complete obstetrical care, comprehensive family welfare, infertility management, prenatal diagnosis, cancer treatment, endoscopic surgery, menopause management, pelvic floor medicine and reconstructive surgery.

Manipal Assisted Reproductive Centre (MARC) is well equipped with latest technologies and a dedicated team to provide world-class management of problems related to fertility. We also manage high risk pregnancies and offer prenatal diagnosis with ultrasonography, amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling. Treatment of all gynaecological cancers is offered in the form of radical surgeries, radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. Special clinics dedicated to oncology, urogynaecology, high risk pregnancy and ultrasound have also been launched.

Community services are being provided like the campaign for anaemia prevention, pulse polio, save the girl child, adolescent and school health, throughout the year. The department also manages Rural Maternal and Child Welfare (RMCW) satellite centres where antenatal care emergency obstetrics services are also provided.



Our educational endeavours include teaching undergraduate medical students during their clinical rotation in MBBS and postgraduates (DGO and MS students).

A well-structured curriculum for the undergraduate and postgraduate programs balances the strengths of sub-specialisation and general practice. We also cater to foreign students for electives as a part of student exchange program.
