Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at UW Health is committed to being an access point for all of the congenital patient needs. Our program also provides a full scope of services for Marfan Syndrome and connective tissue disorders. Our physicians go to outreach locations monthly to provide access to a variety of patients in various locations in Wisconsin and Illinois.

Our multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to provide expert care for patients and their families. In addition to cardiologists and surgeons, our imaging specialists, nurses, genetic counselor, pharmacists, exercise physiologists, subspecialists and social workers provide comprehensive care specifically tailored for adults with congenital heart defects. We work closely with primary physicians and subspecialists to meet patients' medical, surgical, obstetrical and social needs.
