Director's Description

This is a fetal to adult congenital heart program that includes expertise in both pediatric cardiology, as well as, adult congenital cardiology, so no transitions in care are needed. We specialize in non-invasive imaging and minimally invasive transcatheter procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab including transcatheter pulmonary valves and complex septal defect closures. Our program is within one of the leading adult cardiovascular institutes in the county, which allows access to a variety of experts in the field ranging from transcatheter aortic valve replacements to advanced heart failure and transplant. We provide concierge-type services and work to coordinate appointments with other needed specialists as part of our multidisciplinary approach.
