Today it's been 5 years since my son Matthew's A.V. Canal repair. I remember the nurses: Shannon, Jaime, and Patrick....They were so good with Matthew and with my husband and I.
If it wasn't for Children's Hospital and the Cardiac wing he wouldn't be here. Thank you all for what you have done for us and giving him a chance to grow in front of our eyes! Thank you Dr. Mah, Dr. Baird, and Dr. de Ferranti we owe you the world.
5 years ago today, I placed my one week old son in Dr. Emani's hands to repair his COA. I remember it like it was yesterday, and I'm thankful every day for the care we received at the Heart Center at Boston Children's Hospital.
1 year ago today Dr Baird performed open heart surgery on Cayman. It did NOT slow him down. Today his heart is as good as new and he barely even has a scar. Thank you Dr Baird and everyone on the cardiac floor at Boston Children's Hospital.
Two years ago today we were at Boston Children's Hospital and our daughter, Emily, was having an aortic stent placed. We were told it would have to be replaced by the time she turned 2 (which was last June) but its still in place and working beautifully. We thank God every day for the amazing work of Dr. Gerald Marx and Dr. James Lock.
This weekend we celebrated our beautiful daughter, Mikayla's 1st birthday and that’s thanks to the amazing surgeons and staff on the 8th floor!! Mikayla was born with a rare diagnosis of Pentalogy of Cantrell which included several heart defects.
Boston Children’s cardiac catheterization lab on 6 East allows specialists to see inside the heart in way that would have been impossible just a few decades ago. Today, many repairs that once required surgery can be accomplished by catheterization.
Boston Children's Dialysis Unit on Farley 4 is home to an experienced and caring multidisciplinary staff that includes doctors and nurses, as well as a dietitian, social worker and Child Life specialist—all with specialty training in the care of children and young adults with kidney disease.
Following heart and lung transplants, children recover under close monitoring in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) on 8 South of the Main building.
Patient safety and quality assurance are priorities in our CICU, with regular reviews of all practices and procedures. The attending physicians on staff work full time in the CICU and have training in specialty areas, including pediatric critical care, cardiology and cardiac anesthesia.
Their knowledge, together with sophisticated monitoring and support equipment, enables them to recognize problems quickly and respond effectively.
After a child has a kidney, liver, intestine or multivisceral transplant, he or she is admitted to the Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit on 7 South of the Main building. (Some kidney recipients are admitted to the Post-Anesthesia Recovery Unit, rather than intensive care.)
Specially trained pediatric intensivists, nurses and a host of support staff care for more than 2,000 critically ill children annually in the MSICU, from newborn to college-age, across the entire spectrum of childhood disease.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
