What We Treat

The Fetal Care Center serves babies from all over the region with congenital defects or abnormalities. Our team of physicians specializes in general and cardiothoracic surgery, neonatology, nephrology, otolaryngology, urology, neurosurgery, plastic and craniofacial surgery, orthopaedics, radiology and cardiology to care for your newborn.

The goal of our center is to collaborate with obstetricians and perinatologists (obstetricians specializing in high-risk pregnancies) to assist women and families experiencing high-risk pregnancies in developing a comprehensive care plan. As the care plan is developed, the expectant family will be introduced to the services and providers that may be assisting with the delivery and/or post-delivery care of their child.

Services We Offer

The Fetal Care Center offers a variety of services from evaluation and diagnosis to postnatal surgical intervention and care, including fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedures. Before your baby is born, our team will work with you to develop a plan of care for him.

After the baby is born, we will work with you and your delivering physician to transport your baby to either our Egleston hospital or Scottish Rite hospital where you will be met by your baby’s physician to continue caring for your baby. Depending on your baby’s condition, you may be able to choose the facility where he receives care.

A dedicated case manager will provide coordination and serve as a primary point of contact for expectant families and physicians. The case manager will also help you find resources to help care for your child in the hospital and at home.
