Texas Children's Hospital Surgeon Performs 10,000th Congenital Heart Surgery

"We learned about Nathan's heart defect the week he was born and the news that he needed open-heart surgery blindsided us," said mom, Katharine Bryan. "When my husband and I learned about Scott and White's relationship with Texas Children's and their excellent pediatric congenital heart surgery program we were very relieved. Though we were anxious about the long road before us, we knew that Nathan would receive the highest level of care from the excellent team led by Dr. Fraser. Every part of our experience at Texas Children's was wonderful, and we are so grateful to have Nathan's surgery close to home."

The congenital heart surgery team at Texas Children's is comprised of a comprehensive surgical program that performs every procedure available for the treatment of pediatric heart diseases and defects. The team, comprised of pediatric cardiologists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, cardiac intensive care physicians, perfusionists, advanced practices nurses and a host of other cardiac specialists, cares for infants and children of every age, tailoring procedures and treatments to the needs of each individual family. During surgery, this individualized approach includes cardiopulmonary bypass and neuroprotection strategies customized to each patient's condition and needs, helping to ensure optimal outcomes are achieved.

"The 10,000 th case is not only an exciting milestone for the congenital heart surgery team, but for Texas Children's Hospital," said Fraser who is also professor of surgery and pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. "The program has evolved immensely since 1995, but we are always striving to advance our care. The core of our mission has always remained the same: to provide unparalleled care to our patients and families at every point, from diagnosis through treatment and follow up."

As surgeon-in-chief at Texas Children's Hospital, Fraser oversees the entirety of the surgical enterprise, which includes more than 65 full time surgeons and is supported by more than 60 full time pediatric anesthesiologists. Fraser's focus is to develop programs to offer children in need of surgery the very best opportunity for a quality outcome, to promote cutting-edge research and to educate tomorrow's leaders in children's subspecialty surgery.
