The Sakra Institute of Pediatrics and Pediatric Super Specialty seeks to address this concern by providing all Super Specialty services under one roof.
Under the supervision of Dr Yachha, the newly launched dedicated pediatric super specialty department is poised to treat neonatal to pediatric cases which will focus on curing the diseases and not just the symptoms. Dr Yachha, a pioneer who introduced Pediatrics Gastroenterology as a super-specialty department in India, is the Founder-President of Indian Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ISPGHAN).
Sakra Institute of Pediatric and Pediatric Super Speciality OPD is spread across 2,250 sq. ft. and has been built to create a child-friendly environment. Children can indulge themselves in the gaming area that can help them overcome fear of facing a doctor or visiting a hospital. The department is equipped with the most advanced facilities including high-frequency ventilators, nitric oxide delivery and ECMO.
