'73 Richard O'Shaughnessy, MD Retires after 37 year career with OSU 

 

Richard O'Shaughnessy, MD, has retired after a 37-year career with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

A 1973 graduate of the OSU College of Medicine, Dr. O’Shaughnessy completed his internship at Northwestern University and residency at Washington University before returning to Ohio State as a fellow in Maternal Fetal Medicine under Frederick Zuspan, MD, former chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has spent his entire academic career at Ohio State.
 
Dr. O’Shaughnessy served as director of the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine from 1982 to 1992. He has been director of the Fetal Therapy Program since 1993, and also serves as co-director of the Ohio Fetal Medicine Collaborative.
 
A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, Dr. O’Shaughnessy has been instrumental in developing the field of fetal therapy at the medical center. He was the first physician in Ohio to perform an in utero fetal transfusion for the treatment of Rh Hemolytic disease. He also implemented the use of laser ablation for the treatment of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
 
Dr. O’Shaughnessy has authored more than 100 articles and book chapters and was an original member of the North American Fetal Therapy Network (NAFTNet).
As professor emeritus, Dr. O’Shaughnessy will continue to teach and mentor medical students and residents in Obstetrics and Gynecology. We look forward to his continued involvement with the College of Medicine.
 
Congratulations to Dr. O’Shaughnessy for his important contributions to the College of Medicine and the OSU Wexner Medical Center.
