Fetal Treatment Team

Our team of renowned physicians and researchers has performed more than 3,000 successful intravascular fetal procedures, among them hundreds of life-saving fetal blood or platelet transfusions, drainage procedures, intrauterine shunt catheters, and other fetal surgeries.

The Center's experts have a long history of research and innovation in fetal therapy. Dr. Weiner performed the first percutaneous fetal blood sampling in North America in 1984 and was among the first to develop intravascular fetal transfusion techniques.

It is not surprising that the KU Center is the first in the region to offer fetoscopy - a procedure in which a tiny fiberoptic camera allows direct visualization of the fetus. Intrauterine surgical procedures using laser on the umbilical cord and placenta are important steps forward in treatment of severe complications of multiple pregnancies such as twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

Co-management of medical diseases (e.g., diabetes mellitus) during pregnancy is our standard wherever possible.
