Dr. Larry Rand, director of Perinatal Services at the UCSF Fetal Treatment Center, is an obstetrician and gynecologist who specializes in high-risk pregnancy and maternal-fetal medicine, with a special interest in fetal disorders. He counsels and coordinates care and participates in prenatal diagnosis, specializing in procedures such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS), amniocentesis, intra-uterine transfusion and fetal biopsies, as well as interventions such as lung and bladder shunt placements, fetal bladder taps and multi-fetal pregnancy reduction. In addition, Rand cares for patients during labor and delivery.

In his research, he has a special interest in complicated monochorionic twin pregnancies. He has presented research in the fetal treatment community internationally and was nominated for a Young Investigator Excellence in Research Award at the 2009 American Institute for Ultrasound Medicine national meeting. He holds leadership positions at the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and serves on the Patient Safety and Quality Assurance Committee. He travels to West Africa and Central America several times a year to perform surgery and provide high-risk obstetric care to patients with limited access, and to create sustainable health programs in these countries.
