Riley Children’s Health offers laser treatment for Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

The Riley Maternity Tower is now the only place in Indiana offering a fetal intervention program. Highly skilled surgeons are able to operate on a fetus while it is still in the womb to carry out often life-saving procedures.

Two fetal surgeons, Dr. David Streitman and Dr. Hiba Mustafa, are now part of the Riley team.

Thousands of hours have gone into preparing to launch this new program at the Riley Maternity Tower. The surgical team recently did run throughs of specific surgical scenarios to prepare and ensure every step of the process ran smoothly.
