We believe you and your baby deserve the best possible care. That’s why we’re pioneering procedures and offering personalized treatments for every family entrusted to our care.
The Colorado Fetal Care Center (CFCC) offers comprehensive fetal and maternal care for women facing a pregnancy with a known fetal anomaly. We treat the breadth of fetal conditions, from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), to gastroschisis and myelomeningocele repair (spina bifida repair).
Our team of top fetal surgeons, physicians and experts in maternal fetal medicine, fetal surgery and pediatric subspecialties are part of a partnership between Children’s Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado Hospital and University of Colorado School of Medicine.
The Colorado Fetal Care Center fetal care specialists provide obstetric and pediatric subspecialty consultation and a full spectrum of prenatal imaging, diagnostic capabilities and fetal treatment – from shunts and open fetal surgery, to fetoscopic surgery and Ex Utero Intrapartum Treatment (EXIT) procedures. The fetal care specialists team is led by fetal surgeon and CFCC Director Dr. Timothy Crombleholme, who pioneered the first-ever EXIT procedure, which has helped the Center achieve some of the best outcomes for fetal conditions in the nation.
For women and families facing a fetal anomaly, the Colorado Fetal Care Center offers every fetal intervention procedure currently available, at one of the few comprehensive maternal and fetal care programs in the world.
This makes the Colorado Fetal Care Center a national referral center for patients with the most complex or high-risk pregnancies.
