The Jackson Fetal Therapy Institute at Jackson Memorial Hospital offers patients the latest and most advanced resources in the field of prenatal diagnosis and therapy. Fetal therapy is a therapeutic intervention used to correct or treat a fetal anomaly or condition. In almost every case where fetal therapy is needed, the fetus’s life is at risk due to the diagnosed condition. Fetal therapy can improve the survival rates for babies suffering fatal disorders and can prevent or reduce the likelihood of unfavorable outcomes, enhancing a baby’s overall quality of life. Fetal therapy can also significantly reduce the surgical risks to mothers and babies and the total costs of providing care to babies born with serious disorders and birth defects.

Under the leadership of world-renowned surgeon Dr. Rubén Quintero, the center offers minimally invasive techniques that can successfully treat previously untreatable life-threatening conditions diagnosed in utero (while the baby is still in the womb). Patients are treated at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Referred patients have their prenatal ultrasound evaluation, consultation and surgical procedure at Jackson Memorial Hospital as well.
