Fetal interventions and surgery

The Fetal Concerns Center is the only program in the state that performs in utero interventions for a wide range of conditions:
Note: Fetal interventions and surgical procedures require a hysterotomy, which is a surgical incision of the uterus. Similar to a classic c-section, patients with a prior hysterotomy carry an increased risk of uterine rupture during childbirth. It is recommended to wait two years between pregnancies and to deliver at 37 weeks.

Recognized by the American College of Surgeons, our Level I verification represents the highest level of recognition for hospitals that perform complex surgical procedures in newborns and children.
