Director's Description

West Texas Adult Congenital (WTAC) is the first Adult congenital program in West Texas. We have over 150 patient visits yearly. We are affiliated with El Paso Children's Hospital and the Hospitals of Providence Sierra.

We have a dedicated team of cardiologists and have the ability to perform cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, transesophageal echocardiography, and dedicated cardiac MRI. We have dedicated team of specialists that we work with for pulmonary hypertension.

In the last year, we have performed approximately 50 cardiac catheterizations, 8 percutaneous pulmonary valve replacements, 15 atrial septal defect repairs, and over 12 open heart surgeries. Many of these procedures and surgeries are the first of its kind in West Texas. Our program continues to grow and our mission is to help those patients that do not have access to care and better care for those with chronic cardiac conditions.
