The Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center (FDTC) at the University of Michigan integrates physicians and nurses who are experts in their field offering families comprehensive fetal diagnosis and treatment. Using a family-centered philosophy, our experienced and compassionate team provides coordinated care for a pregnant mother carrying a baby with a birth defect.

The FDTC builds on a long-standing collaboration between the University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. Our established prenatal and fetal programs include the Fetal Diagnostic Center and the Prenatal Heart Program. We are one of the few freestanding women's and children's hospitals in the nation. This unique feature enables us to seamlessly transition newborn support after birth to our Level III D Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Our team consists of physicians and other health professionals from maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric and fetal surgery, maternal and pediatric anesthesiology, radiology, and other pediatric medical and surgical specialties.

Our multi-disciplinary group works together to manage high-risk pregnancies, optimize fetal well-being, educate and support families, and provide hope to the tiniest of patients.
