Fetal Conditions We Treat

While most birth defects are best managed with medical and/or surgical treatment after birth, planning for delivery and first-rate post-natal care can greatly impact the diagnosis and survival of a sick infant.

Additionally, an increasing number of anatomic abnormalities can be corrected before birth to reduce some of the life-threatening or devastating consequences of the defect.

Our experienced team evaluates and treats the following conditions (click each condition for more information):

Abdominal Wall Defects

Brain Lesions

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH)

A hole in the diaphragm allows passage of abdominal organs into the chest, which can be associated with small, poorly formed lungs and result in pulmonary hypoplasia after birth.

Craniofacial Anomalies

Duodenal and Intestinal Atresia

Blockage in the intestines beyond the stomach.

Esophageal Atresia with Tracheoesophageal Fistula

Blockage in the swallowing tube (esophagus) with or without an abnormal communication with the breathing tube (trachea).  This condition can result in polyhydramnios, or an elevated amniotic fluid volume.

Fetal Cardiac Conditions

Fetal Cardiac Arrhythmias

Genetic Conditions
Genetic conditions, such as Down’s Syndrome, can be inherited or can be caused by new mutations.  We specialize in a wide array of genetic conditions and offer prenatal diagnosis with chorionic villous sampling in the first trimester or amniocentesis in later pregnancy.

Lung Lesions/CCAM

Maternal Immune Disorders Affecting the Fetus

Multiple gestations and associated complications

Higher order multiples

Monochorionic Twins
