High-Risk Pregnancy Specialist

Wheeling Hospital now has on staff the area’s only perinatologist, specially trained to assess and handle high-risk pregnancies.

Dr. Ronald Thomas, an obstetrician-gynecologist with subspecialty training in maternal-fetal medicine, specializes in treating women with pregnancy complications. These may include maternal issues, such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease, or fetal complications including growth restriction or structural abnormalities. Multiples, such as twins and triplets, also can lead to complications for both the mother and babies.

Working with Thomas is a team of genetic counselors and sonographers with special training in obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound. Together they provide also provide counseling, screening tests and interpretation for both younger and older mothers. Many of the patients seen have current and potential risks for gestational diabetes and gestational hypertension (pre-eclampsia). Often, the risks are based on a worrisome history, such as prior preterm birth.

Thomas is board certified by the American Board of Ob/Gyn, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine.
