Personalized treatment, highly skilled experts

Founded by Dr. Ruben Quintero and Dr. Eftichia Kontopoulos, The Fetal Institute serves as a resource to all Obstetricians and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists. The Fetal Institute is a national and international referral center for the assessment and management of complicated pregnancies.

"Dr. Quintero is truly a super hero, he saved our baby's life and my husband and I will forever be grateful for him and his wonderful team! I was diagnosed with Amniotic Band Syndrome at 22 weeks, and he and his staff accommodated us within 2 days for our initial consultation. As soon as you meet him, you can tell that Dr. Quintero is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, and I felt complete confidence in him. He is incredibly thorough, and was able to see that the amniotic bands were wrapped around my baby's hands and umbilical cord (which the original maternal fetal medicine doctor did not detect), and he successfully performed surgery to remove the bands. I am so grateful that we found Dr. Quintero, I would not have trusted anyone else with this surgery."
