In 1971, Dr. Thomas P. Graham, Jr. became the first Chief of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology and was one of only two Pediatric Cardiologists. Since that time, we have grown to become one of the largest and most comprehensive programs in the country providing excellence in patient care, training, and research focused on children and adults with congenital heart disease. As only the second Chief of the division, I am proud to work with a comprehensive team of professionals focused on providing state of the art clinical service as well as fostering new knowledge through research to advance therapies and improved clinical outcomes. We offer our patients access to a collegial cadre of experts that encompass the entire spectrum of pediatric cardiovascular subspecialties including:

  • Advance imaging modalities including echo, MRI, CT and 3D modeling
  • Interventional cardiology
  • Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia ablation
  • Fetal echocardiography

  • Heart failure management
  • Heart transplant
  • Genetic Evaluation
  • Management of Adults with Congenital Heart Disease

Our team is continually at the forefront of research in new and innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and clinical management of congenital heart disease. With a multi-million-dollar research funding program our faculty, staff, and fellows are engaged in research that includes basic research on the molecular etiology of CHD, precision medicine strategies to optimize therapeutic interventions, optimization of new imaging modalities for assessment myocardial performance, and development of new devices that are tailored for use in our smallest patients.
