Director's Description

The Dallas Adult Congenital Heart Disease program at UT Southwestern Medical Center and at Children's Health is a collaborative effort between adult and pediatric providers to provide comprehensive care to ACHD patients, including medical, interventional, and surgical management. Our team consists of 7 certified ACHD providers, pediatric cardiologists, electrophysiologists, heart failure/transplant specialists, congenital heart disease surgeons, maternal fetal medicine specialists, and other medical subspecialties. ACHD care is predominantly provided at our University Hospital and clinics as well as at the county hospital (Parkland Health and Hospital system). A transition clinic at Children's Health helps to provide optimal transition of care to the adult program.
