Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at Massachusetts General Hospital is among the oldest and largest in the country, and emphasizes lifelong personalized multidisciplinary care. Clinicians in this program care for adolescent and adult patients with the entire spectrum of congenital heart disease. The program has sites in Boston, Waltham, Worcester, and Fort Lauderdale, and provides care for individuals residing in New England, throughout the United States and internationally. Mass General Waltham offers ACHD health and wellness programs focused on stress management, exercise prescription and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk assessment and prevention. Telemedicine and virtual visits are available for patients, and are a great way to supplement in person visits. Mass General is fortunate to have the Mass General Hospital for Children's pediatric cardiology program housed in the same building, thereby offering a combined transition program to empower adolescents to take responsibility for their care as they emerge into adulthood.

Telemedicine visits are available for patient and physician consultation for those individuals who live far away or find it challenging to fit in frequent in person visit. These visits are available as supplemental patient care.

Mass General is fortunate to have the Mass General Hospital for Children's pediatric cardiology program housed in the same building, thereby offering a combined transition program to empower adolescents to take responsibility for their care as they emerge into adulthood.

We're committed to training our Mass General cardiology fellows, as well as the rotating fellows from our network of affiliated programs and referring hospitals, in the specialized care of the adult congenital heart disease patient and his or her family.
