Director's Description

Our program is built on a foundation of lifelong multidisciplinary care that includes over 50 years of successful congenital heart surgery. We offer the only comprehensive statewide program with a group of cardiologists trained and board- certified in adult congenital heart disease. Close collaboration between highly skilled adult and pediatric cardiologists at IU Health and Riley at IU Health gives adults with congenital heart disease access to a wide range of advanced treatments and procedures. These options are only available through a program that combines dedicated experts and resources together in one system.

This team offers focused programs covering:
- maternal fetal medicine and maternal cardiology;
- fetal echocardiography;
- advanced cardiac imaging;
- cardiovascular genetics;
- multi- specialist care following Fontan procedure;
- pulmonary hypertension;
- heart rhythm specialists managing complex arrhythmias;
- innovative valve surgery;
- heart failure, ventricular assist device, and heart transplant.

We work together to ensure that you receive comprehensive care. Our team members communicate with each other and your primary care provider, as well as other medical specialists, to provide you with individual care that addresses your unique needs. We ensure that your care plan meets your unique lifelong health goals.
