Congenital Heart Surgery

UNC has long been a leader in the care of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease.  The full range of congenital cardiac surgery is actively performed, including neonatal repair of transposition of the great arteries utilizing the arterial switch procedure, primary repair of hypoplastic left heart syndrome utilizing the Norwood procedure, repair of the aortic valve pathology, including the Ross procedure, cardiac transplantation and permanent pacemaker implantation.

Although most of our congenital heart surgery is performed on children, our surgeons also treat adults with congenital heart disease.  For more information, see section on Children's Heart Surgery.
