We offer highly specialized care to mothers carrying fetuses with known birth defects that require fetal surgery and treatment before or after birth.

Here at our Center, you’ll find comprehensive, family-centered care in one location, from advanced diagnostic testing, prenatal management and fetal surgery to a special delivery unit, counseling and support services, and expert postnatal care. Our Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit was the world’s first birthing unit dedicated to healthy mothers of babies with known birth defects.

Since 1995, we’ve cared for more than 28,658 expectant parents from around the world and performed more than 2,104 fetal surgeries, an unparalleled level of experience caring for the tiniest patients before, during and after delivery that helps us achieve the best outcomes possible for your baby.

As part of one of the top-ranked and largest children’s hospitals in the U.S., we have a high volume of patients and treat the full range of fetal anomalies. We’re one of the few fetal centers in the world to offer open fetal surgery for life-threatening conditions, as well as a variety of other fetal interventions such as minimally invasive fetoscopic surgery and ex utero intrapartum therapy. Our team is made up of pioneers in fetal medicine who constantly work to refine and advance the techniques used to treat birth defects.
