Philosophy of Care

It is a pleasure and an honor to care for children with heart disease, and to watch their lives transformed by medical treatment. My patients and their parents are some of the most courageous and amazing people I have ever met.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Beroukhim specializes in pediatric cardiology at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her major clinical interests focus on non-invasive imaging of congenital heart disease, including assessment of heart defects by echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cardiac CT. In this role, she is a member of the complex biventricular repair and coronary artery programs at Boston Children’s Hospital. Rebecca is nationally and internationally known for her work in the field of pediatric cardiac tumors, and is the co-director of the cardiac tumors program. Her main research efforts are aimed at advancing care for patients with cardiac tumors. Because cardiac tumors are rare and in some cases even coming to a correct diagnosis is challenging, this type of research relies on collaboration with other institutions throughout the United States and abroad. Furthermore she works closely with providers outside of Boston to care for patients, whether that involves staying locally or traveling to Boston.

"It is a pleasure and an honor to care for children with heart disease, and to watch their lives transformed by medical treatment. My patients and their parents are some of the most courageous and amazing people I have ever met. Congenital heart disease has fascinated me since my early days of medical school - since that time, pediatric cardiology has proven to be an even more exciting field as I have watched the development of new breakthroughs and treatments over the years. In my role as co-director of the Cardiac Tumors Program, I work with a world-class team to advance the field of pediatric cardiac tumors. Our mission is not only to provide the highest possible quality of care, but also to lead research and discovery, and to educate our community."
