Fetal Therapies

Hospitals & Locations > Tri-State Maternal-Fetal Medicine Associates

William Polzin MD, Associate Medical Director of the Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati, along with Mounira Habli MD, are collaborators with the Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati, allowing our patients needing fetal therapy to have seamless coordination of their prenatal care. We also have an onsite nurse coordinator, who serves as your personal liaison.

Depending on what therapy or surgery is necessary, it may be done at Good Samaritan Hospital or Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Dr. Polzin and Habli will be an integrated part of your care team and have privileges at both hospitals.
