Dr. Veille has been a Maternal-Fetal- Medicine [High Risk Obstetrician] since 1984. He completed his Fellowship at the OHSU in Portland Oregon with an interest in Maternal-Fetal hemodynamic changes in pregnancy. He was a co-PI in a grant from the AHA looking at the left ventricular function of patients with severe Pre-eclampsia. Working at the Oregon Primate center, he was involved in a Primate model looking at the effect of calcium blockers on uterine contractility. He moved to Case Western Reserve University and was the Director of the MFM fellowship. He received his first research grant from Case Western Reserve looking at the fetal adaptation to intra uterine growth restriction. He received a FIRST award from the NIH to look at the normal cardiovascular changes in the normally grown fetus using a sheep model validating non-invasive CV evaluation. He subsequently moved to Wake-Forest University and received a second NIH grant to study the fetal CV adaptation in growth restricted fetuses. While at WFU, he was also a co-collaborator in an NIH study looking at the immunological response to PARVO virus in a Macaque primate model. He was Chief of the MFM division. He moved to Albany Medical Center to be Chair of the department where he stayed for 5 years. He moved to Sacramento in 2007 to be part of an MFM group working at Sutter Medical Center. He was an MFM Board Examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has 4 sons and a grandson. Dr. Veille is a Professor in Ob-Gyn at California Northstate University College of Medicine.
