Courtney D. Stephenson, DO, FACOG, joined Carolinas Medical Center's Maternal Fetal Medicine Division in August 2004. She completed her undergraduate studies at Fairfield University and received her medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Graduating in the top 10% of her class, Dr. Stephenson was awarded the American Medical Women's Association Janet M. Glasgow Memorial Award for academic excellence in medicine. She served her residency in New York Methodist Hospital followed by a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at New York University School of Medicine.
At NYU, Dr. Stephenson trained under the chairmanship of Dr. Charles J. Lockwood, now theAnita O'Keefe Young Professor and Chairman, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Stephenson developed her ultrasound diagnostic skills under the direction of Dr. Ilan Timor-Tritsch and Dr. Ana Monteagudo, recognized leaders in the field of fetal sonology.
Pursuing her interest in diagnostic ultrasound and fetal procedures, Dr. Stephenson was trained in chorionic villus sampling (CVS) procedures, fetal transfusions, fetal shunt placement, management of complicated multiple gestations and fetoscopy.
At Carolinas Medical Center Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division, Dr. Stephenson continued to build her fetoscopy skills and performed the region's first fetoscopic surgery in 2006. In October 2007, under the mentorship of world-renowned pediatric and fetal surgeon, Dr. Timothy Crombleholme, Dr. Stephenson undertook an extensive training program in the treatment of Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) at the Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati (FCCC). TTTS is a fetal intervention offered by few medical centers in the country, and Dr. Stephenson is one of only a few specialists in the United States skilled in this procedure.
Dr. Stephenson is board certified in two specialty areas: obstetrics/gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. In 2009, she was recognized as one of the "Top Doctors in Charlotte" by Charlotte Magazine and most recently selected to join "Top Doctors in America."
Because of Dr. Stephenson's success in Cincinnati and her relationship with the physicians at FCCC, Carolinas Medical Center's Maternal Fetal Medicine Division has established a partnership with FCCC to continue education and training in complicated fetal conditions and advanced fetal procedures.
In February 2010, Dr. Stephenson was named director of fetal care at the Charlotte Fetal care Center (CFCC), the first of its kind in the region.
