Dr. Michael Singh is originally from Takoma Park, Maryland and first came to Boston for his fellowships at Boston Children’s and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2003.

Dr. Singh is acutely aware of the unique challenges patients with congenital heart disease and cardiovascular genetic conditions face as they age out of pediatric care, and has dedicated his cardiology practice to this population. Dr. Singh is committed to providing top-quality, lifelong care to his patients, who range from teenagers to adults in their golden years. Dr. Singh’s particular interests include aortopathies and aortic health in Marfan Syndrome and related connective tissue disorders, congenital heart conditions such as tetralogy of Fallot, coarctation of the aorta, single ventricle/Fontan and bicuspid aortic valve, and caring for patients with congenital heart disease and connective tissue disorder through pregnancy.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Singh completed his M.D. at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California; Internal Medicine/Pediatric residency at the Medical College of Ohio; Adult Cardiovascular Disease fellowship at Baystate Medical Center-Tufts University of Medicine in Massachusetts; and Marfan Syndrome/Connective Tissue Disorder and Adult Congenital Heart Disease fellowships at Boston Children's Hospital and Brigham & Women’s Hospital. In addition to being co-director of the Adult Marfan Sydrome/Related Connective Tissue Disorder and Aortic Disease program of the Cardiovascular Genetics Service, he is also the inpatient director of the Boston Adult Congenital Heart (BACH)/Pulmonary Hypertension service. He is a staff cardiologist at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital. His clinical efforts have centered on supporting existing programs in congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and pregnancy in congenital heart disease, currently spanning Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as, the establishment of regional center of excellence for adolescents and adults with Marfan syndrome and related connective tissue disorders at both Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital. His research interests include aortic health, and database direction and development of outcomes assessment tools.
