Alexis Dominguez MD - Low Risk Pregnancies

Alexis Dominguez MD is a highly skilled OB/GYN who is currently practicing in Miami, Florida, in the office of Cardella Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Uro-gynecology. He received his medical training at the Universidad de Ciencias Medicas in San Jose, Costa Rica, and did his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital.

"I enjoy practicing and serving the community that I grew up in," he says. "I am committed to providing compassionate patient care to all of my patients."

Alexis Dominguez MD is trained in Minimally Invasive Surgery and in the da Vinci Robotics System, an advanced surgical technology. He also provides his patients with high and low-risk obstetric care. As a highly trained OB/GYN, he knows that there are many factors that can influence a woman's pregnancy and lead to conditions that could be a threat to its successful outcome.

Existing health conditions such as high blood pressure are one of those factors. Many women who have high blood pressure are still able to have healthy pregnancies and healthy children, provided it is properly managed. Uncontrolled high blood pressure, however, can lead to kidney damage and increases the risk of a baby with a low birth weight.

A disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome can interfere with a woman's ability to become pregnant. Diabetes can also be an issue. It is important, says Alexis Dominguez MD, for women to properly manage their diabetes when they're pregnant, because it can contribute to birth defects. Other low-risk obstetric care issues include autoimmune diseases like lupus or multiple sclerosis, which can lead to preterm birth and stillbirth.

Alexis Dominguez MD urges all women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, and have any of these conditions, to stay in regular consultation with their doctors.
