NEW YORK, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NYU Langone is joining with its new partner, NYU Winthrop, to enhance services for growing families on Long Island. Beginning May 15, expectant mothers experiencing high-risk complications, such as women who have high blood pressure or who are carrying multiples, can see Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists from NYU Winthrop Hospital at NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group, a multispecialty ambulatory practice.
"Our team of MFM experts will work closely with the obstetricians at NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group to help manage any high-risk concerns that might arise during pregnancy," said Martin R. Chavez, MD, chief of Maternal Fetal Medicine at NYU Winthrop. "This encompasses complications that the mother, the fetus, or both, may experience during pregnancy, including fetal abnormalities, diabetes, hypertension, and management of medical or surgical issues."
At NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group, the NYU Winthrop MFM team will also provide pre-pregnancy consultations to mothers with a history of complicated pregnancies to reduce the risks for future pregnancies; screening and diagnostic testing for the pregnancy as needed; as well as perform state- of-the-art 3D and 4D perinatal ultrasound imaging.
This relationship will be further enhanced starting in August 2017, when obstetricians from NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group will begin delivering babies at NYU Winthrop in Mineola.
NYU Winthrop's New Life Center features a relaxing home-like environment, while also providing comprehensive services, including:
- An on-call perinatologist (high-risk obstetrician) and neonatologist (newborn medicine specialist)
- The region's only Fetal Surgery program, which provides life-saving in-utero treatment options under certain critical circumstances
- An advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) internationally recognized for outcomes in both overall survival and survival without complications in extremely premature babies
"We are thrilled to partner with the MFM team at NYU Winthrop," said Elisa Felsen Singer, DO, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone. "By expanding our services at both sites, we can offer our patients greater continuity and convenience of care, which ultimately leads to better outcomes." Dr. Singer also sees patients at NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group.
