Dr. Ring, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Director of Fetal Anesthesia and Associate  Director of Anesthesia at the Allen Hospital, and co-author Dr. Yehuda Ginosar, Chief of the Division of Obstetric Anesthesia at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, provide a review titled, “Anesthesia for Fetal Surgery and Fetal Procedures,” and highlight the unique maternal and fetal physiology considerations for the anesthesiologist in the rapidly developing field of fetal anesthesia. 

As part of his role as Guest Editor, Dr. Ing also co-wrote the introduction to this edition of Clinics in Perinatology. This is the first time Dr. Ing has served as a guest editor. 

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Lee, Dr. Ring and Dr. Ing on their latest accomplishments.
