We believe every patient should benefit from knowing beforehand what to expect and be actively involved in his own care. This section complements the health education you are receiving from your health care providers. Your physician should always be your primary resource for health education. Information at the Patient Education should not be construed as personal medical advice.

The baby friendly concept is designed to enhance the newborn health and to ease the postpartum period which is an important transitory phase in the parenting process. This concept has three major components:
1 • Skin to skin contact
Your baby should be placed directly on your chest after delivery and remain there until the first feeding is accomplished. This helps support a healthy transition from the intra uterin to the extra uterin life of your baby. The more contact mom and baby have in the first few hours and days, the better for both of them!
2 • Exclusive breastfeeding
Nurse your baby within the first hour after birth. If you have a Caesarean section, breastfeed as soon as you are able (try not exceeding 2 hours post delivery). The first milk, called colostrums, is thick and yellow and is produced in small amounts. It is all your baby needs for a healthy start. If you nurse early and often, you will have adequate milk.
3 • Rooming-in
EYELID CHANGES AND TREATMENT
Survival rates among young cancer patients have steadily increased over the past four decades. Unfortunately a lot of them tend to face the possibility of infertility as a result of the treatmnet and/or sometimes the disease itself. Recent advances in reproductive technologies have established fertility preservation as a reality. Clemenceau Medical Center's IVF Unit has established the first structured rapid access Fertility Preservation Clinic in Lebanon.
INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU)
LASER VAGINAL REJUVENATION
LVR is the modification of a gynaecological surgical procedure used for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. Our laser techniques result in gentle precision procedures with controlled accuracy that result in relatively bloodless surgery. For most patients, these techniques result in rapid healing and resumption of daily activities in a short period of time. LVR will effectively enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. It will also effectively decrease the internal and external vaginal diameters (tighten the vagina) as well as build up and strengthen the perineal body. In vaginal relaxation, the muscles are relaxed and have poor tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters increase. The muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state. As a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification is diminished.
PET SCAN PATIENT PREPARATION
Positron emission tomography (PET) uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers, a special camera and a computer to help evaluate your organ and tissue functions. By identifying body changes at the cellular level, PET may detect the early onset of disease before it is evident on other imaging tests.
