We have structured our services in such a manner that our expat and India patients from Oman can have a smooth and easy process during the administration of the procedure.
We understand how difficult it can be for foreign patients travelling for medical care. Therefore we have done our best to provide a hassle free experience for you as soon as you land.
Let’s take a look at the procedure steps that will be followed when you come for any abortion procedure:
Step 1: Scheduling
American Hospital Bangalore operates on a first-come-first served basis. To ensure that you don’t come and end up being sent away because all specialists are occupied, it is advisable to contact us and make a booking/appointment before you travel. This will ensure that you find a specialist available and waiting to handle your case when you arrive.
Luckily, you don’t have to leave Oman for this step. Everything can be done from the comfort of your home. All you need to do is to give us a call or WhatsApp us at +91 900 849 2277 or +91 934 382 6182 and talk to one of our experienced specialists who will advise you on the best way forward.
If there is anything to know about travelling or the abortion treatment procedure in Oman, they will inform you and respond to any queries that you might have.
Step 2: Travelling
This step involves getting from your home in Oman to our Hospital in Bangalore. Our hospital is located at 10/4 Queens Road near the Indian Express Building at the Cunningham Road and Queens Road Intersection. The Congress Party offices on Queens Road and the Cantonment Railway Station are nearby.
From Oman, you should book a flight to Kempegowda International Airport in Bangalore aka Bengaluru from where you can take a taxi that will bring you straight to the hospital if you don’t have any other errands to run in India.
In efforts to ensure that you experience no problems during transit, we are always happy to link our foreign clients with good taxi companies that will ensure a seamless process from the airport and back.
If you like, you can even book a taxi before you leave Oman to ensure that you find someone waiting for you and ready to take you to any part of Bangalore that you would like to go. If you would like to stay around for some time before or after the procedure, we can also link you to excellent hotels.
Step 3: Initial Appointment
Here, you will get a chance to talk to your doctor about yourself. This is the place where you should open up about any pre-existing medical conditions that might affect the success of the procedure.
Our doctors are professionals in the field and they are backed by years of experience in the field. With that said, you can be sure that they will have answers to all the questions that you might have about the procedure.
They will help you choose a method that will be used to terminate the pregnancy given your particular needs, and tell you the process that will be followed during the procedure. You will also be told what to expect after the procedure to ensure that you are fully prepared for all the occurrences.
If you have any questions about the process, this is a good time to air them because you will get credible answers from the specialists who will handle your case.
If you would like our one-day abortion treatment procedure, it is advisable to arrive early in the morning so that you can get time to talk to the doctor and leave ample time for the procedure.
Step 4: Tests
Before the abortion can be administered, there are tests that have to be done to verify that indeed your body is in a position to accept the treatment without any complications. Different procedures will have different effects on your body. Hence the doctor will recommend the tests that are relevant depending on the method that will be used for the abortion.
You might be asked to wait for a few minutes as the tests are being done. Once the results are out, they will be taken to the doctor who will analyze them and give any comments. Once this is done, you will be asked to proceed to the treatment room where the procedure will be administered.
Step 5: The Abortion
This step is where the actual abortion takes place. Depending on the method chosen, you might be taken to a standard treatment room or a surgical operating room. Surgical operating rooms are for the older pregnancies and complex methods such as surgical abortions or dilation and evacuation.
If your conditions are fit for a simple method like abortion pills, then you will be taken to a standard treatment room where the medication will be administered. The process followed and the length of the procedure will depend on the complexity of the method that will be applied.
However, it normally ranges between a few minutes for the simple procedures and up to 2 hours for the more complicated procedures. The doctor will also recommend some medication to counteract any possible effects that might occur after the procedure.
Step 6: Post Abortion Care
This is the final step in the abortion process available to Oman residents at American Hospital Bangalore. We take the healing process very seriously. Hence we can never overlook the importance of this care after the procedure.
Our post abortion care is customized to fit our patients individual needs depending on the method that was used in the abortion. You will get tips and advice that will be very practical in helping you recover in the shortest time possible and continue with your day to day operations.
Under normal circumstances, all parts of this procedure have been designed to fit in a single day to ensure that it takes as little of your time as possible. In a few rare circumstances, the doctors might find it fit to request that you stay overnight for observation before you are discharged.
However, a majority of our patients are treated and released on the same day. We understand how difficult life can get when you are unwell in a foreign country. Hence we do our best to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays so that we can release you as soon as possible.
