Pediatric Surgery

Antenatal Counseling

As early as the thirteenth week of pregnancy, we can detect some conditions that may require surgery to correct. Examples of these include abdominal wall defects (such as gastroschisis and omphalocele), congenital diaphragmatic hernia, lung malformations, and some tumors. If such a condition is detected, often the obstetrician who has identified the problem will refer parents for counseling to a pediatric surgeon.

If you are carrying a child with a congenital abnormality that may be corrected using surgery, discussion with a pediatric surgeon at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital can help you understand the many complex issues that can surround a child born with a surgical problem.

Prenatal discussions also allow you and your doctor to make individualized plans for the treatment of your newborn. These consultations also provide you with the opportunity for a calm introduction to NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, which can help to ease the stress associated with the birth of your baby. Antenatal counseling is one of the most important services we provide to educate and prepare you and your family.
