Taking the surgery out of open-heart surgery! 13-year-old, Adam Roberts, became the first patient at Medical City Children's Hospital and in North Texas to benefit from a newly FDA-approved heart device that takes the open-part out of certain open-heart surgeries.

Adam was born with a complex congenital heart condition that often results in multiple open-heart surgeries throughout a lifetime. He had his first when he was just a few weeks old. This time, Vivian Dimas, MD, a pediatric interventional cardiologist and medical director of adult congenital heart disease at Medical City Children's Hospital was able to use a new, next generation valve technology that enables patients who otherwise would not be candidates to benefit from a minimally invasive approach.
