Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is a comprehensive service-line that involves the Divisions of Pediatric Cardiology, Internal Medicine Cardiology, and Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery. Care is provided across the continuum and is all inclusive, involving outpatient and inpatient services as well as state of the art therapeutic interventions. Experts in primary management of complex congenital heart disease collaborate with interventional cardiologists,  electrophysiologists, and cardiothoracic surgeons to allow patients to have access to all potential medical and surgical options. Patients are able to be cared for at outreach clinics across the state and Chapel Hill region. As an inpatient, patients are hospitalized where they are best served and use all the amenities at UNC Memorial Hospital and North Carolina Children’s Hospital to assure the best quality of care and outcomes. In addition, parent planning and pregnancy counseling, genetic services, and psychosocial support are all available in this comprehensive care model.
