Betty Irene Moore Children's Heart Center
When it comes to repairing the smallest hearts, nothing matters more than experience, says Stephen Roth, MD, MPH, director of the Betty Irene Moore Children's Heart Center.
That is one powerful reason why, even though our dedicated pediatric heart surgeons and cardiologists treat the most difficult cases anywhere, our outcomes are better and our patients’ lengths of stay are shorter. It’s also why families around the world choose Moore Children's Heart Center, which has over 250 dedicated faculty and staff members, including 8 pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons, 42 pediatric cardiologists, 11 pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, 3 radiologists specializing in heart imaging and 150 cardiac specialist nurses.
Our Heart Center services include:
Ø Fetal cardiology
Ø Pediatric cardiology
Ø Pediatric heart surgery
Ø Pulmonary artery reconstruction (PAR) program
Ø Single ventricle program (SVP)
Ø Heart transplant (PACT)
Ø Cardiovascular connective tissue disorders program
Ø Bloodless surgery program
Ø Adult congenital heart disease program
Ø Alagille syndrome program
As a leading heart center, we routinely provide advanced cardiac support, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and external ventricular assist device support for younger children and implantable (LVAD) support for older children.
In addition, our team has experience in treating adults with congenital heart disease at much older ages. Find out more about each of the services within our Heart Center:
