PAS is considered a life-threatening condition and requires a multidisciplinary approach to provide a safe outcome for both mother and baby. Gras directs UCSF's Multidisciplinary Approach to the Placenta Service, an effort to collaboratively diagnose and care for women with PAS. She also cares for women who are experiencing gynecologic emergencies.
