Established in 1992, Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center’s Fetal Treatment Program is the longest-standing fetal care center in the area. We are one of only 20 medical centers in the United States and Canada, and the only one in central Ohio, that are members of the North American Fetal Therapy Network (NAFTNet). This means we have established expertise in fetal surgery and other forms of care for complex disorders of the fetus. We also are a member of the Ohio Fetal Medicine Collaborative, a joint program between local hospitals and Nationwide Children's Hospital.
In addition, our physicians are actively involved in clinical research and have participated in the development and testing of many of the fetal and diagnostic procedures and treatments we offer. Research studies in fetal treatment for certain conditions also may be available to you.
Finally, as an academic medical center, we provide innovative research, depth of medical expertise, and the latest technologies and fetal treatment techniques. We’re also part of Ohio State, which means we have access to resources, equipment and support — including the region’s only Prenatal Reference Laboratory — that make certain treatments possible only here.
