David Faraoni, MD
It is a privilege to be part of Texas Children’s Hospital and the Heart Centre Team. I am committed to provide safe and excellent care to children and adults with congenital heart disease.
My goal is to contribute to the development of pediatric cardiac anesthesia both clinically and academically. My objectives at Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine are to keep promoting excellence in clinical care and research, and help junior faculty members, fellows, residents, and students in their path of becoming excellent clinicians and increase the number of clinicians successful in clinical research.
