Dr. Emani's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Emani "Following completion of training in adult cardiothoracic surgery and pediatric cardiothoracic surgery, I joined the staff at Boston Children's Hospital. I am the surgical director for the complex biventricular repair program, and adult congenital heart program. My clinical expertise also includes valve repair and replacement strategies, neonatal heart surgery, and minimally invasive surgery for children. My research efforts include strategies to "grow" a left heart – including stem cell therapy - in patients with borderline left heart who otherwise would undergo single ventricle palliation. A major problem in children with heart valve disease is the lack of a valve that can grow as a child grows. This motivated me to pursue a design of expandable valve technologies, to reduce the need for reoperation in children. Additional research interests include use of 3-D printing for surgical planning and understanding the clotting system in children after heart surgery. Dr. Emani serves as an expert for the Department of Cardiac Surgery for BCH's Precision Medicine Service."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Emani "Although originally an engineer by training, I found my true inspiration to be children and adults with congenital heart disease. 

With just a little help from doctors and surgeons, a patient with CHD can recover to do amazing things, and this has motivated me to dedicate my life to such "warriors".  I try to combine my experience as an engineer to bring new technology and innovative solutions to difficult problems, but find the greatest satisfaction in seeing a child run, laugh, and play even after major surgery. My adult patients with congenital heart disease were the trailblazers for our field as they were among the first to undergo many of the surgeries we perform today.  But they may need further surgeries later in adulthood, and have unique needs that we address with our combined adult congenital heart program.   My research and device development work is totally motivated by my CHD warriors young and old, as we find ways to solve complex problems together."
