Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine

MFM Faculty

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) Division at UTHSC is a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, sonographers, dieticians, pharmacists and psychologists with one main goal: taking care of pregnant women.

The division sees patients who are considered to be at-risk of complications during and preceding pregnancy, and immediately after birth.

One of the most successful practices in the university's health care system, the MFM Division covers all high-risk pregnancy care at Regional One Health, which includes around 4,000 deliveries per year. It also covers four other locations and has a referral base covering five states. Yearly, the division sees more than 12,000 high-risk patients.

The team performs the following procedures:

  • High-level ultrasound with 4-D ultrasound capabilities (approximately 15,000 per year)
  • Fetal echocardiograms
  • First-trimester screening
  • Prenatal diagnosis
  • Genetic counseling
  • In-utero interventions
  • Amniocentesis
  • Cord blood samplings

The MFM team works to:

  • Prevent congenital and adrenal hyperplasia
  • Treat fetal arrhythmias
  • Manage fetal anemia
  • Perform amnioreduction
  • Perform LASER therapy for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS)
