The Glenn procedure is the second of three surgeries for patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). The Glenn procedure is done after the Norwood procedure and before the Fontan procedure. It also is the second surgery for patients with complex single ventricles.
The cardiothoracic surgeons at Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, typically perform the operation when the patient is between 4 and 6 months old.
As the leading providers of pediatric heart care in Louisville and Southern Indiana, the cardiothoracic surgeons at Norton Children’s Heart Institute are trained and experienced in the Glenn and Fontan procedures associated with the treatment of all single ventricle patients, including those with HLHS.
