The Department of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to expectant mothers with high-risk health conditions, fetal abnormalities, or obstetric complications.
MFM is a branch of medicine that focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy. Our MFM specialist manages high-risk pregnancies for women with serious medical diseases or critical care issues, or whose pregnancies are complicated by fetal structural, functional, or genetic abnormalities.
Our specialist in the division have developed particular expertise in managing multiple pregnancies, from identical twin gestations complicated by malformations to discordant growth and twin-twin transfusion syndrome. Our specialist pioneered in-utero fetal procedures to treat some of these conditions, using radiofrequency ablation, fetal blood transfusion, and shunt procedures to drain abnormal fluid collections or an obstructed fetal bladder.
