St Louis Fetal Care Institute's Fetal Surgeons to Visit Chicago Area Physicians

ere form of spina bifida), bronchopulmonary sequestration (rare fetal lung masses), and twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

The presentation will be at 6:30 p.m. at Mastro’s Steakhouse, 520 N. Dearborne Dr. Chicago, IL 60654. Those who wish to attend the presentation should contact the Fetal Care Institute at (314) 268-4037. The team will be available for media interviews while in the area on April 11 and 12.

The St. Louis Fetal Care Institute offers a myriad of open and minimally invasive fetal surgeries. It is the fastest-growing center in the country providing fetal myelomeningocele (the most severe form of spina bifida) repair surgery, and the only one in the country to offer laser ablation treatment for rare fetal lung masses. “This laser treatment cuts off blood supply to a rapidly growing lung mass, essentially destroying it and giving the baby’s lungs and heart the opportunity to develop. The babies who have received this treatment are now healthy, thriving little ones. Without the procedure, chances at life were slim,” says Vlastos. “Our hope is to help as many babies and families as possible."

By working with doctors from the Chicago area we think we can continue to give more and more babies a chance at life,” says Vlastos.
