A new maternal-fetal medicine specialist has joined Owensboro Health’s One Health medical group, with Thomas Tabb, MD bringing a new specialty and capabilities to the area.
As a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Dr. Tabb has training and decades of experience in caring for high-risk pregnancies, including care of expecting mothers with health issues and babies with special care needs.
Dr. Tabb is board certified in the areas of obstetrics/gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Louisville and earned his medical degree from the University of Kentucky. He later completed an internship, residency and a maternal-fetal medicine fellowship at the University of Tennessee at Memphis and a related post-doctoral fellowship at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
The need for maternal-fetal medicine specialists is growing, Dr. Tabb said.
“If you look at a lot of cases, the health of mothers is getting somewhat worse. Hypertension, diabetes, tobacco use and obesity not only increase maternal complications, but also fetal complications,” Dr. Tabb said.
