Antenatal urologic abnormalities are co-managed in close partnership with physicians at Hartford Hospital, the University of Connecticut Health Center, and Danbury Hospital.

Maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists and other pediatric subspecialists collaborate closely on patient care, and many visits are combined with our colleagues in pediatric nephrology. Advanced diagnostic techniques such as fetal MRI are available to improve prenatal diagnoses and preparation for neonatal care. We also partner with the Fetal Care Center.
