When parents learn of a prenatal condition, concern and anxiety are automatically substantially increased. The Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center at Rush University Medical Center was developed to bring together physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses with advanced training, genetic counselors, social workers and other staff to deliver the best in prenatal diagnostics while providing support and comfort to parents.
Perinatal consultation during this critical period helps ease the anxiety brought on by these unique pregnancies. By using the latest technology and a collaborative relationship, the Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center gives expectant parents and their referring physicians the information they need to provide optimal care.
Headed by two internationally recognized leaders in their field, Jacques Abramowicz, MD, and Robert Kimura, MD, this program provides expertise on a range of conditions such as abdominal wall defects, renal disorders, neural tube defects and any combination of structural or genetic disorders. With their help, you can expect around-the-clock availability, a collaborative relationship and a high level of care.
