Division of Cardiovascular Surgery
Our division provides surgical services for patients with congenital heart diseases in collaboration with the Division of Cardiology.
Our team, made up of two board-certified surgeons and two trainees, performs more than 200 cardiac surgical procedures annually. In addition to improving surgical outcomes, we give high priority to interdisciplinary practice and the training of young physicians.
The management of congenital heart diseases consists of several components including diagnosis, medical treatment, catheter intervention, and surgery, which overlap with fetal, neonatal, intensive and long-term care. Of these components, our division is responsible for surgery. We specialize in complex congenital heart diseases in premature infants, neonates and adults. Interdisciplinary cooperation is important for successful congenital heart disease management. Multidisciplinary teamwork is crucial, particularly in patients with chromosomal or syndromic anomalies who have multiple organ disorders.
