Director's Description

Kaiser Permanente members throughout all of Southern California are offered the opportunity to establish care at the Los Angeles Medical Center. Our program offers the latest expertise in the field of Adult Congenital Heart Disease. We perform congenital imaging including echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, congenital CT, and congenital MRI at our own facility. Almost all surgeries are performed in- house after thorough discussion at our regularly scheduled case conferences. We perform cutting- edge catheter- based procedures and have some of the highest volumes in the country. Most arrhythmia management is performed without our center. Close collaboration with the Ahmanson/UCLA Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center allows us to provide our patients with catheter based and surgical interventions not readily available at our own institution. Lastly, regularly scheduled meetings
with our perinatology group allows us to manage the highest- risk pregnancies with excellent outcomes.
