What Do Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeons Do?
Pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons are highly skilled surgeons trained in correcting congenital birth defects as well as acquired heart conditions in children. They perform complex surgeries on structures of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, esophagus (food pipe), trachea (wind pipe), and heart valve defects in children as little as a few days old.
All affiliated pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons are board-eligible or board-certified subspecialists in cardiothoracic surgery and have completed their residency in surgery, followed by advanced training in cardiothoracic pediatric surgery.
