Advanced Ultrasounds

Advanced Ultrasounds

Ultrasounds are performed to examine the uterus and ovaries and to assess your fetus. Most commonly, ultrasounds are performed with a device outside of your body, but at times may require a device to be inserted into the body. Our team is specially trained to diagnose and treat complex prenatal complications using technology with the highest level of accuracy in ultrasound imaging. In fact, we were first in the State of Texas to receive certification as an adjunct detailed fetal anatomic ultrasound center by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.

Diabetes during Pregnancy

Diabetes during Pregnancy

We provide counseling and education, glucose monitoring, and fetal monitoring to ensure positive pregnancy outcomes for women who are diagnosed with diabetes before pregnancy (type 1 or 2) or during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). By making lifestyle changes and taking medication (if necessary), you can manage your gestational diabetes effectively. Your maternal fetal medicine doctor will guide you throughout your pregnancy and delivery to ensure the best health outcomes for you and your baby.

Fetal echocardiograms

Fetal echocardiograms

A fetal echocardiogram is a detailed view of your baby's heart using ultrasound imaging. During the exam, your physician will be able to detect abnormalities in the structure of your baby's heart. An echocardiogram will not put you or your baby at risk.

Fetal Testing and Treatment

Fetal Testing and Treatment

Modern technology has greatly expanded the types of tests and procedures that can be done to help care for you and your baby. Fetal diagnosis and treatment is a collaborative effort between specialists from many different areas, including obstetrics, maternal fetal medicine, and surgery. While some birth defects are best treated during pregnancy or with surgery immediately after birth, other fetal abnormalities can be treated before birth to reduce some of the life-threatening consequences of the defects.

Fetal Transfusion

Fetal Transfusion

A fetal transfusion, or intrauterine transfusion, is the transfer of red blood cells to your fetus. A transfusion may become necessary if your fetus has anemia, which could be caused by Rh incompatibility, a viral infection, or twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

Genetic Counseling

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling helps people understand how genes, medical conditions, and birth defects may affect their family's health. Genetic testing can be done to show how your baby may be at risk for a health condition, and we can help you understand test results to make the best decisions for your family. Genetic counseling is available before or during pregnancy.

High Risk Pregnancy

High Risk Pregnancy

For pregnant women with chronic health problems, or unexpected problems that develop during pregnancy, we provide care every step of the way to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery. If your baby has a birth defect, we can start treatment before birth and meticulously plan for the delivery and care after birth. We will collaborate with your obstetrician, surgeon, pediatrician, and any other necessary care provider to ensure you receive the best care possible. We are available 24/7 so you receive care when you need it most.

Multiple Pregnancy Management

Multiple Pregnancy Management

In the case of a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets, etc.), we are here to guide you every step of the way. Being pregnant with multiples can increase the risk of maternal and fetal complications, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and premature birth. Our specially trained team will take every step necessary to ensure your babies are growing and healthy. We provide individualized counseling and coordinated care for each woman and her babies.

Noninvasive Prenatal Testing

Noninvasive Prenatal Testing

Noninvasive prenatal testing is a method of screening for certain chromosomal abnormalities in your baby. This method is done using a blood sample from your arm, and the blood is then tested. This method is safe for you and your baby.
