Director's Description

At the Cincinnati Adult Congenital Heart Program (CincyACHD), our mission is to provide the best possible care for adults with congenital heart disease by integrating: A) compassionate, comprehensive, patient-centered care; B) community advocacy, partnerships and education; and C) transformational research.

We offer a complete spectrum of care for adults with congenital heart disease, everything from advanced imaging with 3D reconstruction, to exercise prescription and cardiac rehabilitation, to psychological assessment, to genetic counseling, to specialist pharmacist consultation, to catheter and surgical interventions including:

  • Pulmonary valve replacement (e.g., SAPIEN XT, Melody valves)
  • Aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve replacement and repair
  • Atrial septal defect closure and patent ductus arteriosus closure 
  • Valve-sparing aortic root replacement and externally supported Ross procedure 
  • Dilation and stenting for aortic coarctation 
  • Mechanical circulatory support, cardiac transplantation, heart-liver transplantation

While easy access to cutting-edge treatments and diagnostic techniques is fantastic, they are not always appropriate. We pride ourselves most on listening to each patient, understating their personal values, and considering options in the context of a person’s foundational principles. To achieve the best outcomes, we blend exceptional technology and personalized care. There are also a variety of subspecialty programs within CINCYACHD, including:

  • Heart disease in pregnancy
  • Multidisciplinary Fontan management
  • Cardiovascular genetics
  • Pulmonary hypertension care
  • Heart Failure/mechanical support/transplant
  • Heart liver transplant
