    Advancing the Science of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery

    The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is comprised of a team dedicated to the surgical care of children with cardiac problems. Our research efforts within the division continue to grow with basic science laboratories, as well as the collaboration of cardiothoracic surgical faculty with the Division of Cardiology and other faculty on a number of clinical research projects.

    Based completely at Cincinnati Children’s, the division has formed a strong collaborative relationship over recent years with the leadership in cardiothoracic surgery at University Hospital. As an integrated component of the Heart Institute, a multidisciplinary business unit within Cincinnati Children’s, our division has enjoyed a continually higher profile nationally as a leader in the management of cardiac problems in children.

    Physicians within our division function as key faculty of the pediatric cardiology and pediatric critical care fellowship training programs at Cincinnati Children’s. Close interaction with these fellows occurs on a daily basis, primarily in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, in addition to a number of weekly teaching conferences in which the faculty participates.
