Maternal-fetal medicine in Wichita, Kansas
The course of pregnancy is an incredible time in a mother's life and is filled with many exciting moments. There are times, however, where pregnancy doesn’t always go as planned and you need an experienced obstetrician (OB) trained in maternal-fetal medicine to navigate the challenges of a high-risk pregnancy for you and your baby. Our extensive OB experience means you receive the highest quality care in the region. Patients also receive an extraordinary amount of individual attention from our providers and staff.
Maternal-fetal services we offer
Our maternal-fetal specialists are trained to deliver a variety of services for patients including:
We consider our sonographers to be an extension of our providers, which is why the sonographers in our office are certified to the highest standards of both the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). Each sonographer has undergone additional training beyond what is typically required for the position. The majority of patients seen in our office end up having at least one sonogram and in some cases, including high-risk pregnancies, may have a scan monthly or even weekly. Because our sonographers are so highly trained, you and your baby receive some of the best obstetrician-provided imaging in the region.
High-risk pregnancy consultation
Maternal-fetal physicians have specialized training in complications associated with pregnancy. Some conditions, like diabetes, hypertension and anemia are fairly common and may not require more than a visit or two. Other high-risk pregnancy conditions, like placenta previa, intrauterine growth restriction and fetal heart conditions, may require more extensive follow-up. Regardless of the path your pregnancy takes, we will take as much time as necessary to answer all of your questions. We know this can be an anxiety-filled time, which is why we have made a habit of making sure you leave our office with a better understanding of your pregnancy. You can expect to spend 45 minutes or more with our providers. This specialized attention is a hallmark of our practice.
Some pregnancies are at increased risk for a variety of medical conditions. Our high-risk OB specialists take the time to explain the possible complications and offer the ability to screen for them. Not every patient and/or condition is a candidate for genetic screening including those that are high-risk. If this is a concern for you, please feel free to ask your provider about it. Some of the tests we can perform are markers for first-trimester Down syndrome, alpha-fetoprotein and chromosomal anomalies. Learn more about the details. (link here)
Many women struggle with becoming pregnant. In some cases, it can be traced to genetics or medical conditions. Other times, the difficulty can be related to lifestyle factors that decrease your chance of conceiving. Regardless of your circumstances, we can help you develop a plan that gives you the best possible chance of success. Our OB specialists also provide counseling for moms-to-be who are at increased risk for genetic or medical abnormalities.
Amniocentesis (also called amnio) is a prenatal test used to diagnose certain birth defects and genetic abnormalities. They may cause health problems for a baby. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that all pregnant women should have the option of having prenatal tests like amniocentesis.
