Director's Description

The Texas Adult Congenital Heart (TACH) Program is the largest ACHD program in Texas and the most comprehensive ACHD program in region. Patients are able to be seen at sites across the greater Houston area (including The Woodlands, Sugarland, and Katy) by providers specifically trained in ACHD care. Our TACH program cardiologists have combined training in adult cardiology, pediatric cardiology, and adult congenital cardiology giving the program a depth of knowledge unique to our center. We also specialize in the care of cardiac issues that arise during preganancy. We have a large program of cardiac, OB, and Maternal-Fetal-Medicine providers at Texas Children's Hospital- Pavilion for Women to care for cardiac issues during pregnancy.
