With multiple doctors, a large support team, and systems and processes perfected over more than 20 years, we give you the right care from the right people at the right time.
The responsiveness you depend on
The one thing all high-risk pregnancies have in common is risk. So that you get the right care at the right time, we respond to all your needs with the urgency they demand.
Other than having risk in common, every high-risk pregnancy is unique. So are your concerns, feelings, anxieties and medical needs. That’s why everything we do is centered around you.
The highest level of screening and diagnostics available
Effective care for high-risk pregnancies depends greatly on screening for, evaluating and monitoring your risk factors. For that reason, our diagnostic capabilities are nationally recognized and unmatched in Nevada, including several tests we introduced to the state.
As an accredited ultrasound provider with leading-edge capabilities, we provide today’s highest level of abnormality detection. In some studies, ultrasound exams from MFM specialists have two to three times the anomaly-detection rates of standard ultrasound scans from general OB providers. Even for a pregnancy without risk factors, you’ll have the highest level of reassurance.
- First trimester ultrasound scan
- Fetal echocardiography
- Advanced fetal anatomy ultrasound
- 3D and 4D ultrasound
- Fetal DNA screening from maternal blood draw
- Diagnostic genetic testing (amniocentesis/CVS)
Specialized testing and counseling to determine and address your baby’s genetic risks
Risk for genetic abnormality is present in every pregnancy. But if you are of advanced maternal age (over age 35) or have a family history of genetic disease, your risk is higher. At the High Risk Pregnancy Center, we have the most advanced screening capabilities available to determine your risk, including prior to becoming pregnant. Then our master’s-level, certified genetic counselors will explain your risk and options, answer your questions, and provide the information you need with the empathy, understanding and compassion you deserve.

So that you can have a full-term pregnancy and a healthy baby, we have been breaking new ground in MFM/perinatology care since our founding in 1996, with many “firsts” that are now the standard of care in our specialty.
