CINCINNATI, OHIO — Mayo Clinic's Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are pleased to announce their collaboration within the HLHS Consortium to provide solutions for patients with HLHS. The consortium aligns regional medical centers of excellence and advocacy groups with the shared goal of finding solutions for individuals affected by congenital heart disease, including HLHS.

 

"We're excited to collaborate with Dr. Tweddell and the team at Cincinnati Children's Heart Institute," says Tim Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Program for HLHS. "They are not only a center of excellence for the early-stage HLHS surgeries, but they also provide high quality, comprehensive care for teens and adults with congenital heart disease. We're proud to work together with them to find new ways to strengthen the hearts of individuals with HLHS."
