Director's Description

Keck/USC’s ACHD Care Program combines expertise in pediatric and adult cardiology and cardiac surgery to deliver the most comprehensive care to patients living with CHD. Patients also receive expert care for non-cardiac conditions through our extensive collaboration with subspecialists throughout Keck Medicine of USC. Comprehensive transition and complete integration are our program’s hallmarks. Our program offers special expertise in heart rhythm management with cutting edge technology, new techniques, and
devices to aid in the diagnosis and long-term management of arrhythmias in ACHD patients. The program also has deep integration and collaboration between adult and pediatric cardiology subspecialists in interventional cardiology and advanced imaging.
