Cardiac surgery for kids.

Our pediatric cardiac and thoracic surgery program is perhaps one of the most complex areas of our care. Because we wanted to create a world-class program, we sought out Hisashi Nikaidoh, M.D., in 2008 to lead this charge.

Dr. Nikaidoh, internationally known pediatric cardiac surgeon and inventor of the "Nikaidoh procedure," helped to build our cardiac program to the area leader it is today. Now led by Drs. Mary-Jane Barth and Osama Eltayeb, M.D., the team continues our vision to provide area children access to excellent cardiac care close to home.
