Neonatalist & Paediatrician
Dr. Shrawan Kumar is recognized as the Father of Neonatology in Bihar for his pioneering work in the field. He was the first to introduce neonatology in the state and has trained numerous doctors and healthcare workers to save sick babies.

Dr. Shrawan Kumar brought hope to sick and premature babies in Bihar by establishing the first neonatal Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in the state over 30 years ago. Equipped with advanced medical equipment, our ICU has seen tremendous success in the recovery of extremely sick babies. In the past, we were able to save babies as small as 800 grams but now, with our improved technology, we are also able to save babies as small as 500 grams.
We are proud to be the first and best in Bihar.
Dr. Shrawan Kumar, recognized as the Father of Neonatology in Bihar, is the pioneer of neonatology in the state. He started his work in 1989 and trained many doctors and health workers to save sick babies.
After completing his postgraduate education in pediatrics and obtaining an MD degree, Dr. Kumar went to Lady Harding Kalawati Saran and AIIMS in New Delhi to receive specialized training in neonatology, as the field did not exist in Bihar and Jharkhand at that time.
One of our most challenging cases was in 1989 when we received an extremely premature baby of 6 months gestation, weighing only 800 grams. At that time, babies under 1 kg were considered non-viable and left untreated. The baby's father, Dr. P.P. Gupta, requested for treatment and we accepted the challenge, with limited resources. With the grace of God, we were able to save the baby and he is now fit, fine and working as an engineer.
Since 1989, over the past three decades, we have saved more than 50,000 tiny newborn babies in our center
