Emery Research Group
Stephen Emery, MD
Magee is a member of the North American Fetal Therapy Network (NAFTNet), a collaboration of twenty academic centers involved in fetal therapy that perform multi-centered collaborative research. Dr. Emery’s research interests are clinical and involve the diagnosis and management of fetal diseases such as twin-twin transfusion syndrome and critical aortic stenosis. He participates in multidisciplinary collaborative research and publications with other departments within UPMC such as Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Urology, Obstetric Anesthesia, and Pathology.
Dr. Emery studies the following areas:
- Developing a database of intrauterine procedures and their outcomes at UPMC
- Establishing the testing interval to survey for twin-twin transfusion syndrome in monochorionic gestations
- Sonographic and histologic correlation in placenta accreta, increta, and percreta
- Epidemiology, diagnosis and management of cesarean section
