Maternal-Fetal MedicineHigh-Risk Obstetrics

Division Chief: George Saade MD

About 10 percent of all pregnancies are thought to be "high risk." This means that a maternal or fetal condition is present that could affect the health or wellbeing of the mother or the baby. Our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists or "Perinatologist" have the training and expertise to care for these complicated pregnancies. After completion of their Ob/Gyn training, Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists undergo three years of extra training to teach them to deal with even the most complicated pregnancies. Although many general obstetrician-gynecologists have experience in caring for high-risk pregnancies, there are times when consultation with, or turning the care over to, one of our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist can make all the difference for mother, baby or both!

We specialize in the care of women with complicated medical problems such as:

  • hypertension
  • diabetes
  • thyroid disease
  • seizures
  • maternal cardiac disorders

We specialize in advanced obstetrical ultrasound and in taking care of fetuses with anomalies or other conditions that require surveillance and treatment. 

Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists at UTMB have written the textbooks and guidelines that others use when caring for pregnant women and their babies.
