Director's Description

KACH offers specialized care for the adult congenital heart patient. We have a team in place that is able to manage all aspects of care. We have specialized imaging capabilities. We have a strong CT surgery program and we have a relationship with Cincinnati Children's Hospital. We have worked hard to put a program in place that is patient centered, is up to date, and utilizes the latest technology to ensure the best care possible.

Dr. Leventhal works closely with the University of Kentucky PEDS cardiologists for ease of transition and to include their expertise as well.
