Dr. Latson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Latson "I am a pediatric cardiologist and specialist in adult congenital heart disease. I serve as the medical director of Pediatric and Congenital Interventional Cardiology at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and co-medical director of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute. I have more than 35 years of experience in treating patients of all ages with congenital heart disease. I have been fortunate to be able to contribute to the development of many modern techniques and devices designed to treat some congenital heart defects. I love working to improve the lives of children and adults with special medical needs due to a heart defect. It is incredibly fulfilling to be able to improve a child's heart and then follow them through their entire life. I am one of a small number of physicians board certified in the new specialty of Adult Congenital Heart Disease. This demonstrates my commitment to constantly learning and investigating the many factors that can affect patients with congenital heart defects as they age. I grew up in Houston, Texas, and was on the faculty of Baylor College of Medicine and then the University of Nebraska Medical School. Before coming to Memorial in 2011, I spent 18 years at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio, where I served as chairman of Pediatric Cardiology, and director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at the Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Diseases. I love being back in the South. I am a member / fellow of many professional organizations including the Adult Congenital Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association and the Society for Cardiac Catheterization and Interventions. Remaining active in these types of organizations ensures that we know about, and can offer, the latest cutting-edge evaluations and treatments for our patients."
