New head of obstetrics in Monaco
Bruno Carbonne, head of Obstetrics and Perinatology at the Trousseau Hospital in Paris has been appointed obstetric director of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco. He will succeed the current director Professor Alain Tressier early in 2015. About 1,000 babies per year are born at the Princess Grace Hospital. Despite delivering many stars and the super-rich, the Caesarean rate was only 15 percent in 2011, lower than the rest of France.
