Stephen Thung, MD, MSCI, is a nationally recognized maternal fetal medicine specialist whose research at Ohio State has provided leading-edge care to women with high-risk pregnancies.

What attracted me to Ohio State? Ohio State is the birthplace of some of the latest advancements in obstetrical care, and Ohio State is one of the country’s most influential thought leaders in the care of both the healthy and the sick. When it comes to high-risk pregnancy, my colleagues at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are revolutionizing the quality of care in this field.

How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? Every single pregnancy is different. Our maternal fetal medicine team applies a tailored approach that focuses on the health of each mother and her baby. We offer individualized counseling to women on nutrition or breastfeeding, and handle some of the most medically and obstetrically complicated pregnancies in the state of Ohio.

But for Ohio State... I would not have the opportunity to lead central Ohio’s premier obstetrical service to even greater eminence. This is a place where we bring the safest family centered obstetrical care to healthy mothers. In my mind, there is no better place to practice obstetrics, or to have a baby.

Over the next decade, Ohio State plans to attract 500 worldclass faculty leaders who will propel discovery in the fields of health and wellness, energy and environment and food production and security. Through this effort, Ohio State will truly lead the way in finding solutions to the technological, social and environmental stresses faced by our community and our world.
