Agnesian HealthCare welcomes maternal fetal specialist from Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin
Agnesian HealthCare is welcoming a new maternal fetal medicine physician service this fall with the addition of Randall Kuhlmann, MD, PhD, a Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin board-certified perinatologist.
Perinatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the mother, fetus and newborn during high-risk pregnancy, childbirth and the post-partum period. It is one of the most rapidly evolving fields in medicine.
In his role, Dr. Kuhlmann will collaborate with Agnesian HealthCare obstetricians to provide care for all types of high-risk conditions, including premature labor, premature rupture of membranes, twin- and triplet-related complications, maternal diabetes and maternal hypertension. He brings a broad and deep range of experience from his role as director of maternal-fetal medicine at eastern Wisconsin’s only academic medical center, Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin. When necessary, patients can be easily referred to Froedtert Hospital for highly specialized maternal fetal care services.
“Expectant parents have many questions and concerns as they navigate their way through a high-risk pregnancy,” Dr. Kuhlmann says. “I work closely with parents to understand each step of the process, and to collaborate with the mother’s obstetrician to provide comprehensive care throughout pregnancy and delivery.”
A graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Dr. Kuhlmann completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency and maternal-fetal medicine fellowship at the Eastern Virginia Graduate School of Medicine Medical College of Hampton Roads. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and maternal-fetal medicine. Dr. Kuhlmann adds his practice at Agnesian HealthCare, to existing practices at two hospitals in the Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin network, Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa and Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls.
“Each plan of care is created based on the individual needs of the mother and baby to ensure personalized, comprehensive care, including prenatal, labor, birth and postpartum care,” says Dr. Kuhlmann. “We provide an integrated approach to caring for high-risk obstetrical patients including individualized diagnostic screenings and consultations to determine pregnancy risk factors. Parents become a major player in the care team and are very involved in the creating and managing their care plan.”
