Your Care Team

  Conditions We Treat

The conditions listed are common reasons for prenatal consultations. While these are not exhaustive, they are frequent prenatal findings that necessitate careful planning. Our collaboration with your obstetrician and the maternal fetal medicine team ensures coordinated care for both you and your child.

Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU)

If your child requires surgery soon after birth, they may be transferred to our Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU), specially equipped for intensive care. The ISCU is staffed with a dedicated team to cater to the needs of small or sick infants, providing comprehensive care.

You can also meet with the neonatal team to discuss care options, and we can arrange tours of the ISCU and Labor and Delivery area for your comfort at UTMB.
