Assoc. Prof. Dr. Boonchai Uerpairojkit
Obstetrics & Gynecology Doctor specializing in Maternal and Fetal Medicine
Prenatal care through childbirth involves simultaneously caring for at least 2 living persons. Many unforeseen circumstances which require immediate attentions may arise. The practice of an obstetrician demands flexible working hours. “Whenever called upon, an obstetrician must always respond.”
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Boonchai Uerpairojkit is one of the leading and highly regarded obstetricians in the country with vast experiences in the care of complex, multiple-birth – up to sextuplet – pregnancies with safe and sound deliveries.
He places emphasis on educating and informing the mother and her family in details about the intricacies and finer points of pregnancy and childbirth at the very first doctor appointment to serve as the foundation for appropriate lifestyle modification to ensure the safety of mother and child during pregnancy and childbirth. During delivery, there are risks and unexpected complications which require the expertise, mastery and quick decision making of an obstetrician for the well-being of the newborns.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dr. Boonchai not only cares for the mother and child but also looks out for their family as if they are his own relatives particularly in time of crisis such as pregnancy complications. The family can be the pillar in deftly guiding everyone out of the critical, trying time.
“A mother always worries about her child. An obstetrician must look after both mother and child as well as provide emotional support to the father and family members.”
In addition to the professional practice of prenatal and obstetric care, Assoc. Prof. Dr.Boonchai has a penchant for healthcare personnel development. One of the overriding reasons why he joins MedPark Hospital is its policy and direction to be a hospital for difficult and complex medical cases; most of which currently is shouldered by public sector medical school hospitals. Establishing similar breed of hospital in the private sector provide alternative option contributing to the well-being of the Thai populace.
In the first stage, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Booonchai aims to set up a quality service system for safest pregnancy and childbirth, as well as the well-being of mother and child focusing on preventive care and health promotion.
Next is to discover and advance obstetrics and gynecology knowledge passing it to new generations of doctors and healthcare personnel. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Boonchai places priority on building a talented team of personnel with diverse expertise and experience for endless knowledge transfer to ensure the safety of mother and child at MedPark Hospital. He supports medical trainings for doctors who are eager to further their learning, promote research to develop new body of information, and provide opportunity for every team member to utilize and improve their potential to the fullest.Lastly, Dr Boonchai underscores the importance of assembling a happy obstetric team readying for patient care by co-designing with MedPark Hospital in locating the physician and staff quarters on the same floor as the delivery suites. The quarters is equipped with lounging area, sleeping pods, and fitness corner for relevant medical professionals including obstetricians, anesthesiologists, nurses, and obstetric staff to enjoy quality, restful breaks during long hours of attending to the childbirth process while able to quickly reach the patient and efficiently provide ministration when the final birthing moment arrives.
