Director's Description

This is a fetal to adult congenital heart program that includes expertise in both pediatric cardiology, as well as, adult congenital cardiology, so that patients are able to remain within one program regardless of age but their provider will transition to an adult congenital heart specialist as they reach adulthood. We specialize in non-invasive imaging, complex adult congenital heart surgery, and minimally invasive transcatheter procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab including transcatheter pulmonary valves and complex septal defect closures. Our program is within one of the leading adult heart institutes in the county, which allows access to a variety of experts in the field ranging from transcatheter aortic valve replacements to advanced heart failure and transplant. We additionally have world-class maternal-fetal medicine program that assists in management with high-risk pregnancies.
