Heartwarming Development From Omaha Cardiac Surgeon

Congenital heart surgeon James Hammel, M.D., on Thursday presented a video demonstration of a novel infant cardiac surgical technique at the joint meeting of the Congenital Heart Surgeons’ Society and the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association in Chicago. The technique allows many complex heart defect repairs, including the Norwood operation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome, to be performed more quickly and safely.
