Meet the Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery Team

After a year of waiting for a new heart, Thomas Norris goes home

The Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Program team with Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with UofL School of Medicine, includes highly skilled providers in pediatric heart surgery.

The Norton Children’s Heart Institute cardiac surgeons are leaders in their field and at the forefront of research into the newest heart surgery techniques and treatments. Our heart surgeons and supporting providers are deeply experienced in the most complex procedures for newborns to adults with congenital heart defects.

Our expertise ranges from patching holes inside the heart, widening blood vessels, reconstructing the heart to allow for healthy circulation and, in the most extreme cases, pediatric heart transplantation.

Norton Children’s Heart Institute, part of Norton Children’s Hospital, was the second facility in the country to perform an infant heart transplant in 1986. Since then, our pediatric heart surgeons have performed more than 100 heart transplants.
