When you arrive for your initial visit you can expect a full day of diagnostic testing and evaluation. Our Program Assistant will help guide you through each appointment and will be available as a resource to you throughout the day. Once the diagnostic testing is complete you will meet with the multidisciplinary care team which includes a pediatric fetal surgeon, a maternal-fetal medicine physician and any specialties who will be involved in the coordination of your care.
Collaboratively with you and your referring physician, the CFCC team will review fetal imaging findings, discuss their implications, and review our treatment recommendation, which will include prenatal management, the potential role of fetal intervention, our suggested delivery management, and long-term implications of the diagnosis. We will answer every question you have so you feel prepared to make informed decisions on next steps.
