Joseph A. Dearani, M.D., has a special interest in the surgical treatment of pediatric and adult congenital heart disease, robotic heart surgery and heart transplantation.
Surgical repair for most congenital heart defects occurs in infancy and early childhood. These operations can be performed with low risk even for the most complex defects, and result in long-term health, normal life expectancy and excellent quality of life for most patients. Novel valve repair techniques can be performed for the aortic, mitral and tricuspid valves that can delay or avoid valve replacement, and selected valve procedures can be done robotically or with a minimally invasive approach.
