On behalf of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, I am privileged to extend my warm wishes and greetings to all those visiting our web site. The University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is responsible for teaching Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatal Paediatrics to undergraduate medical students. In addition, there are a number of undergraduate, post graduate and foreign elective students pursuing their researches through the Department. Obstetrics and Gynaecology represents the most challenging and exciting frontier in medicine. We offer the most intellectually stimulating environment possible for our students. This web page will introduce you to our research programs and educational opportunities.I invite you to explore our web site and contact us if you would like to have additional information. We hope that you enjoy Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Faculty of Medicine the University Of Colombo and hope to stimulate rich and lasting relationships.

Our Department has had a tradition of being the centre of excellence for treatment of medical disorders in pregnancy. These include acquired and congenital heart disease, diabetes and other endocrine disorders complicating pregnancy. In a single ward round in our high-risk ward at the De Soysa Maternity Hospital one is bound to encounter a number of conditions that would take a long to see in many other settings. In gynaecology our main areas of interest are in endometriosis and endoscopic surgery.
