Pirooz Eghtesady, MD, PhD

Dr. Eghtesady's research focus is on congenital heart diseases, with particular emphasis on aortic stenosis and hypoplastic left heart syndrome. His internationally recognized investigative work in fetal cardiopulmonary bypass led to his appointment to the FDA Circulatory System Devices Panel of the Medical Devices Advisory Committee. Dr. Eghtesady is happy to provide a second opinion on any heart disease diagnosis or heart disease treatment recommendation your child has been given.
