Our Banner Children’s Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgical Specialists are Board Certified physicians who specialize in treating heart defects present in children. Our physicians provide lifelong cardiac care for the unborn fetus and newborns through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood.
From all modalities of diagnostic testing, through various medical therapy and catheterization interventions and simple to complex surgical procedures, our goal is to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient.
Our Pediatric Cardiologists provide family-centered patient care with nationally-recognized expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric heart disease. Our providers serve patients from across the Southwest and specialize in:
- Fetal heart defects
- Electrophysiology (for management of cardiac rhythm disturbances, including the use of medications and pacemakers)
- Catheter intervention (for enlargement of small blood vessels with balloon or stents, plugging abnormal blood vessels, creation of life-saving holes inside the heart, opening a closed or narrowed valve using a catheter, closure of holes inside the heart, and replacement of heart valves without open heart surgery)
Our Fetal Cardiology Program offers evaluation, diagnosis and management of pregnancies at-risk for fetal heart defects and rhythm disturbances in collaboration with referring perinatologists and obstetricians. Early detection of these congenital heart anomalies provides for appropriate evaluation and optimal care and delivery of the high-risk baby. We also provide care for adult survivors of childhood heart disease. In partnership with Banner medical centers, we have a Pediatric Echocardiography Laboratory that uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to provide cardiac sonographer support to evaluate children.
Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery
Our Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeons are nationally-recognized experts in open heart surgery and circulatory support techniques including Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO). Together with our specially-trained pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, cardiac critical care physicians and cardiac critical care nurses, we ensure that every child receives expert level care during their treatment and stay with us.
We specialize in newborn and infant heart surgery, including surgery for single ventricle congenital heart disease (Norwood, Sano, Glenn and Fontan operations). From low-risk simple operations to complex heart reconstruction techniques, we care for the full spectrum of congenital heart defects affecting both children and adults.
