Dr. Rad and his team have expertise in performing and interpreting Early Fetal Scans and Echocardiograms that facilitate the diagnosis of fetal abnormalities as early as 11 to 16 weeks of gestation. Dr. Rad has undergone extensive training in fetal echocardiography, sonography, and interpretation of early fetal scans under the auspices of the world’s leading specialists in the United Kingdom, Austria, Israel, and the United States.
Dr. Rad’s first-hand experience with high-risk pregnancies
Dr. Rad and his lovely wife, Nina, have three children and all three were high-risk pregnancies.
Nina had premature twin baby girls in April 2020 after spending days in the Cedars-Sinai Maternal-Fetal Antepartum Care Unit at the height of the COVID pandemic.
Lola and Leilani were born prematurely at 31 weeks due to premature rupture of membranes and fetal intrauterine growth restriction, and barely weighed 2 pounds each! They spent over two months in the Cedars-Sinai neonatal ICU. Both children, fortunately, did great in the NICU and are thriving now.
Dr. Rad’s third child, Isaac — another COVID baby — was born May 2021 at just 37 weeks gestation. He was also a high-risk pregnancy due to fetal intrauterine growth restriction.
As a result, Dr. Rad has first-hand experience of what a high-risk pregnancy and NICU stay entails. This experience has only made his ability to both empathize and commiserate with his patients better.
