Adult Congenital Heart Disease
The Center for Adults with Congenital Heart Disease at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is designed to provide continued cardiology care in an adult setting. The Center is staffed by two Washington University faculty adult cardiologists and two nurse coordinators with special interest and training in congenital heart disease. Their expertise provides for knowledgeable follow-up of congenital heart defects, as well as acquired cardiac problems, such as coronary artery disease. The Center has close affiliation with multiple specialties to provide for specific needs, including cardiac electrophysiology, surgery, rehabilitation, high risk and general obstetrics/gynecology, radiology and select general medical and surgical subspecialties.
The center currently serves over 2,000 patients. Pediatric cardiology fellows have a two week adult congenital rotation during their 3rd year. Additional elective time in this area is an option. The faculty staff for the Center are:
Joseph Billadello, MD (Director), and Phillip Barger, MD
