2016 Distinguished Achievement Award

Issues Related to Identical Twin Gestation

Julian E. De Lia, MD, FACOG, FACS, MBA
 

This year’s Milwaukee Academy Medicine’s Distinguished Achievement Award recipient is Dr. Julian E. De Lia.  An obstetrician/gynecologist, he attended New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry, then completed his Ob/Gyn training in New Jersey, and ultimately entered academic medicine.  He was on the full-time faculty at the University of Utah, Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Illinois in Chicago. He was the medical director of the International Institute for the Treatment of Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

Dr. De Lia was named by his peers as one (of four) of the pioneers of maternal-fetal surgery, and recognized by both the March of Dimes and Wisconsin Association of Perinatal Care for his 30+ year effort to reverse the high mortality and rate of brain damage seen in babies affected by twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).

In 1988 he developed and performed for the first time, intrauterine placenta laser surgery for TTTS, an operation which is now performed in centers throughout the world.

Dr. De Lia believes that issues related to identical twin gestation are important to all physicians, regardless of specialty.
