Whilst educating the couple on possible side effects of each and every contraceptive method, we give the couple the freedom to select the most suitable method for them according to their convenience and health conditions.



Standing as the only private hospital specialising in women and child care in Sri Lanka, Ninewells tributes the ladies of the nation by conducting a “Well-Women Clinic” to ensure their well-being.

At our Ninewells Well-Women Clinic, your medical history will be taken by the medical officer, and relevant examinations will be carried out, including breast examination. Depending on the findings certain investigations will be offered.

Though women are likely to be detected with several breast conditions including breast cancer, with aging, an early detection truly helps to make these health conditions completely curable…

If you are above 40 years, it is important to do a mammogram. At the Ninewells Radiology and Imaging Department we are equipped with cutting-edge mammogram machines which allows the patient to control the pressure exerted on their breasts according to their level of comfort. The machine provides a crystal clear 3D image without exposing the patient to increased amounts of radiation. Furthermore, the in-built biopsy arm has the ability to detect lesions and take the biopsy by itself with precision.

Ninewells also offers you the opportunity to conduct Pap Smear investigations whenever necessary. Pap smear investigations are done in order to detect cervical conditions including cervical cancer at an early stage. Based on the fast and accurate results provided by our investigations, if necessary, we will refer our clients to relevant consultants.
