Our heart program's innovation success stories

At the Herma Heart Institute, we look at each child individually and work to find solutions for their biggest challenges.

Oftentimes, the clinical and surgical innovations used for one child are used to help hundreds, if not thousands, of congenital heart disease patients across the world.

Below are just a few proud stories of the pioneers who helped pave the way for groundbreaking innovations.
