Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center featured in Quarterly Magazine

The UW Health Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center has celebrated many successes in the past several months, including rebuilding a baby’s airway partway through delivery, supporting a Wisconsin woman who gave birth and received a heart transplant all within eight weeks, and treating twin-to-twin transfusion syndromeMichael Beninati, MD, assistant professor in the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, co-directs the center and has been crucial to the success of all these procedures.

An article in the Summer 2023 issue of Quarterly Magazine, the UW School of Medicine and Public Health’s alumni publication, explores the origins of the Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center and highlights the value the center brings to Wisconsin:

“Reflecting on the situation before the Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center opened, [Center director and Department of Surgery assistant professor Inna] Lobeck notes, “People often aren’t able to travel several hours to get fetal surgery and live away from home through their baby’s birth and time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).”
