The Fetal Treatment Center is proud of its 40-year legacy in fetal evaluation and treatment. Since its founding in 1981, the center has expanded its vision to incorporate dynamic new methods for diagnosis and treatments.
UCSF performed the first successful open fetal surgery in 1981, and is one of the most experienced institutions in fetal surgery and endoscopic fetal intervention in the world. Our success in correcting life-threatening problems in utero lies in the combination of specialized technology – much of which was developed or refined here -- and the precise coordination of pediatric experts from across multiple specialties.Learn more about the Fetal Treatment Center
