My philosophy of care is to provide unremitting attention to detail, with the goal of improving care.



I started my career as an adult cardiologist, but I found that I enjoyed working with children and their families more. As executive co-director of the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s, I work with my colleagues to establish a world-leading multidisciplinary team that provides the highest level of clinical care for children and adults with congenital heart disease.

As a general cardiologist and chief of Pediatric Cardiology, I treat children with heart disease. I have more than 30 years of experience with some of the best programs in the world. My philosophy of care is to provide unremitting attention to detail, with the goal of improving care. I’ve written more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, more than 30 book chapters, and co-edited seven textbooks. I currently hold over 15 U.S. and international patents.

In my research, my colleagues and I are studying ways to protect the heart from damage by drugs, as can happen with cancer therapies and from conditions such as heart attack. We are also looking at how to protect the heart from the long-term effects of surgery for congenital heart disease.

In my free time, I enjoy the symphony and collecting prints and lithographs.
