Dr. Chowdhury has the expertise to determine when a C-section is the best method for delivery and the skill to effectively perform the surgery for women throughout the Dallas area.
A C-section – or cesarean delivery —is a surgical procedure in which a baby is delivered via incisions in the mother's stomach and uterus. A C-section may or may not be planned in advance.
A C-section is recommended when the doctor believes it is the safest means of delivery for the mother, baby or both. C-sections are usually performed under regional anesthesia, in which only the lower part of the body is numbed and the woman is awake during the surgery. If the C-section is an emergency, general anesthesia may be used. Common reasons a doctor will elect to perform a C-section include
A C-section is major surgery. It requires rest and about six weeks to fully recover. Women and babies typically stay in the hospital for two to three days following a C-section. The mother is urged to get up and walk as soon as possible, in order to speed recovery and prevent blood clots, and constipation. Women are prescribed pain medication that won prevent their ability to breast-feed. Once home, new moms should not lift anything heavier than their baby, and need to refrain from intercourse until given the go ahead by their doctor.
