Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at Norton Children's Hospital and University of Louisville has decades of experience caring for adults with congenital heart disease in the Kentuckiana Region. It was formalized in 2013 under the physician leadership of Dr. Walt Sobczyk, with the recent assistance of Dr Bradley Keller and Nurse Practitioner, Dana Fentress. We strive to provide top quality adult congenital heart care for patients across the region in both Louisville (our primary location), but also across the region through our outreach clinics strategically located throughout the region. We provide inpatient and outpatient care for ACHD patients focusing on the many issues that ACHD patients face such as arrhythmias, heart failure, valve disease, pregnancy/reproductive issues, and many others. We offer heart failure and transplant services through our affiliation with the Adult Transplant Team at the University of Louisville and Norton Adult Hospital. We have experienced interventional cardiologists who perform complex adult congenital cardiology interventions such as Melody and Sapien transcatheter pulmonary valve replacements. We perform complex arrhythmia interventions in our state- of- the- art electrophysiology laboratory. We have experienced surgeons who perform many complex surgeries in our adult congenital population. We have an expanding experience in the management of complex pregnancy care with patients with congenital heart disease. We aim to provide the top-quality care the adult congenital patients in the region require.
