Rady Children’s Hospital has nearly 1,200 outpatient visits for cardiac patients aged 18 and older. Patients from Southern California and Hawaii comprise the majority of patients seen in our program, along with patients referred from outside the region. The ACHD Program team and affiliate members provide outstanding holistic care, including all required interventional catheterization, electrophysiology, imaging and surgical procedures.
Most of the program’s younger ACHD care currently is provided by experienced physicians at Rady Children’s, who are knowledgeable about the ongoing needs of adults with congenital heart disease throughout their lifetimes. Patients age 40 years and those requiring other adult subspecialty care are seen with our colleagues at UCSD Sulpizio CV Center,headed by Laith Alshawabkeh MD.
The program’s research efforts involve both clinical research studies and advocacy programs for adults with congenital heart disease; Dr. Perry was a long-term active member on the medical advisory board of the Adult Congenital Heart Association. Several innovative basic science research projects related to ACHD topics, in partnership with the UC San Diego Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, are funded by the National Institutes of Health and industry and are well underway.
