Research

Dr. del Nido joined Children’s in 1994 and became the chief of cardiac surgery in 2002. His research work has focused on two areas related cardiac surgery: the first area involves investigation of mechanisms of injury from myocardial ischemia and on developing techniques for heart preservation during cardiac surgery. The second area of investigation aims to develop techniques for performing reconstructive surgery inside the beating heart using 3-D echocardiography.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
