Dr. Larry Rand is an obstetrician and gynecologist who specializes in high-risk pregnancy and maternal-fetal medicine. He is director of perinatal services at the UCSF Fetal Treatment Center.

Rand has a special interest in fetal disorders. In addition to caring for patients during labor and delivery, Rand counsels them, coordinates their care and participates in prenatal diagnosis, specializing in procedures such as chorionic villus sampling, amniocentesis, intrauterine transfusion and fetal biopsies.
