TriHealth On Call: Robotic Cerclage - Hope for High-risk Pregnancy

Pre-term birth is the leading cause of death for children under five. The experts at TriHealth’s Tri-State Maternal-Fetal Medicine Associates are bringing hope through minimally-invasive robotic cerclage.  TriHealth is the only provider in the region performing the procedure.  

“Our goal is work with couples who have suffered tragic loss of pregnancies and children in the past,” says William Schnettler MD, Director of the TriHealth’s Trans-abdominal Cerclage program.  “We help them see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that we can help them bring a healthy baby home.”

Dr. Schnettler provides more information about the procedure in this segment of TriHealth On Call.
