Director's Description

The Alabama Adult Congenital Heart Program is the only ACHD program in the state. Located at UAB and Children's of Alabama, it provides comprehensive ACHD care, including advanced imaging, cardiac catheterization, ACHD surgery, management of arrhythmia, heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. We have 3 ACHD Outreach locations (Huntsville, Montgomery, and Mobile), a unique Comprehensive Pregnancy and Heart Program, and ACHD Telemedicine that allows patients to be seen in the comfort of their own home.
