The Perinatal Cener at Weill Cornell

The Perinatal Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center is an internationally recognized facility for fetal diagnosis and counseling. We offer care for congenital heart disease, multiple pregnancies, Rh disease and anemia, bladder outlet obstructions, pleural effusions (fluid in the lungs), and abnormalities of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), chest, urinary tract, abdomen, and skeleton ─ from the moment of prenatal diagnosis and for several years after birth.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Our center is renowned for the evaluation and management of fetal abnormalities affecting the brain and/or spinal cord, including hydrocephalus (excess fluid in the brain), spinal cord disorders (such as spina bifida), congenital cysts, and congenital brain abnormalities. The multidisciplinary healthcare team includes pediatric neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-radiologists, and neonatologists with expertise in diagnosing and managing pediatric neurologic abnormalities. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is staffed by specialists with expertise in most major neonatal neurologic disorders.
  • We offer specialized care for unborn children diagnosed with urogenital problems, such as hydronephrosis (a blockage in the ureter where it joins the kidney prevents urine from draining into the bladder). The Perinatal Center partners with the Institute for Pediatric Urology at the NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Center for Children's Health to provide comprehensive care for unborn children with urogenital problems.
  • Patients come from all over to our Fetal Echocardiography Service to receive care from dedicated cardiologists and a perinatologist with expertise diagnosing and treating abnormalities affecting the heart. For those who will require surgery, NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell features a highly experienced staff of pediatric heart surgeons who are well versed in performing state-of-the-art procedures. Because children with congenital heart problems often have other health problems, too, the Perinatal Center offers access to specialists such as pediatric gastroenterologists, urologists, and neurologists.
  • Our center provides exceptional orthopedic care for infants with problems such as clubfoot, congenital short femur, skeletal dysplasias, and congenital spine anomalies (which can be diagnosed before birth), as well as hip dislocation/dysplasia and other problems diagnosed after birth. The Pediatric Orthopedic Service features pediatric orthopedists affiliated with the world-renowned Hospital for Special Surgery, who also serve as faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Other benefits for patients include:

One Convenient Location:
Patients and their families can receive all of their care in one convenient location. We'll work with you to schedule your diagnostic tests and consultations all on one day, if you prefer. Patients who travel to see us find this to be especially helpful. When you return for additional visits, you'll return to the same familiar location and receive care from the same familiar faces.

An Understanding and Collaborative Team:
When you arrive, you'll meet with a nurse practitioner or genetic counselor who will explain the process to you so you'll know what to expect. Your healthcare team has exceptional expertise in caring for patients like you. All of your care team members work together to assemble a plan of care that best meets your needs. This collaboration is bolstered by regular meetings with all team members who gather to review and discuss your care. We are with you at your side to support you throughout this journey.

Continuity of Care:
Mothers can receive all of their care and deliver their babies at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. Should your child require specialized care after birth, he or she can be cared for on-site in our renowned Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which is staffed by highly skilled and experienced neonatal nurses, nurse practitioners, and neonatologists. The hospital is designated by the New York State Department of Health’s Bureau of Women’s Health as a Regional Perinatal Center, and receives transfers of complicated cases from throughout the region.
