PRENATAL TREATMENT FOR DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA

We are now conducting a pilot program to treat the most severe forms of diaphragmatic hernia before birth. Thanks to an Investigational Device Exemption from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), we now offer fetal tracheal occlusion using a minimally invasive technique. For more information, click here or contact our coordinator at coordinator@fetal-treatment.org.
