Division Chief, UHealth Jackson Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Listen to Rodrigo Ruano, MD, PhD, and Jennifer Falcon, maternity patient, on the life-saving fetal intervention that saved her twin’s lives at Holtz Children's Hospital and The Women's Hospital at Jackson Memorial in Miami.

Dr. Ruano's clinical efforts focus on developing and investigating new minimally invasive fetal therapies, such as fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion for congenital diaphragmatic hernia, fetal cystoscopy for fetal bladder obstruction, in utero repair of fetal spina bifida, and fetoscopic laser ablation for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
