Diagnostics and Treatment

Fetal Center DiagnosticsThe center offers a complete range of prenatal testing and interventions with a coordinated program for mother and child before, during and after birth. The team of experts will develop a tailored, comprehensive plan of care for both mom and her babies.

Each consultation will include an enhanced ultrasound to help determine key indicators for high risk conditions. In addition, a personalized consultation with a certified genetic counselor will be scheduled to identify inherited risk factors. Equally important to the consultation process is a personalized nutrition plan created by a registered dietitian. Once these tests and assessments have been completed, the parents will meet with a maternal fetal medicine expert to review results and outline a plan of care.

The Center offers the full spectrum of fetal therapies, including complex open fetal surgery and laser photocoagulation for TTTS.
