Dr. Markert's Care Philosophy
My practice focuses on infants born with complete DiGeorge syndrome who have no T cells. T cells which develop in the thymus are the white blood cells that fight infection. Infants with complete DiGeorge syndrome are born without a thymus. Most children with this disease die by the age of 2. They need a thymus transplant to survive. I lead the only thymus transplant program in the United States. Families usually come to Duke and are treated as an inpatient or outpatient for four months. After that time the family returns home and the infant is followed locally with guidance from my team. Thymus transplantation is a research procedure. We have transplanted more than 70 infants with thymus tissue; more than 70 percent survive with good T cell function.
