Dr. Kim's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kim "Dr. Heung Bae Kim is currently the Director of the Pediatric Transplant Center at Boston Children's Hospital and is an Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. In 2002 while still a Pediatric Surgery Fellow, he developed a novel intestinal lengthening procedure known as the Serial Transverse Enteroplasty (STEP) to treat patients with short bowel syndrome and over the last decade, the STEP has become the preferred surgical procedure worldwide for this condition. Most recently, he has developed a novel method known as Tissue Expander Stimulated Lengthening of Arteries (TESLA) to lengthen the normal aorta in children with midaortic syndrome, allowing for aortic replacement without prothetic grafts. Dr. Kim has won numerous academic awards and most recently, he was the first recipient of the Sheikh Zayed Prize for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at the Pediatric Surgical Innovation Symposium in Washington DC. He has lectured worldwide on his clinical and research interests and was invited to Japan to perform the first STEP procedure in that country. He has coauthored more than 70 original papers or chapters and has contributed significantly to both the pediatric surgical and the transplantation literature."
