Pediatric Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship

The pediatric congenital cardiac surgery fellowship program is managed through a co-operative effort of the Pediatric Surgery Division and the Seattle Children’s Hospital and began in 1953 with the performance of the first pediatric open-heart operation at Children’s. The clinical program has grown parallel with an active pediatric cardiology service to provide comprehensive diagnostic, interventional, and surgical care for all forms of heart disease in children from birth to age 21. We currently perform 600 cases at Seattle Children’s Hospital and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, including 400 pump cases. Learn more >>
